Catch the Glow Parade – Estes Park, Colorado

November 29, 2012



It’s an annual event that attracts thousands to our quaint mountain village. A Holiday tradition that is a great time for people of all ages! Every year on the day after Thanksgiving, people enjoy spending time downtown visiting the shops, restaurants, and parks that make up the heart of Estes Park. As the sun begins to set families line Elkhorn Avenue as they anticipate the start of the Catch the Glow Estes Park Holiday Parade.

Many local businesses and organizations create their own floats and start an the west end of Elkhorn Ave and travel east making a turn up Hwy 7 ending in the Estes Park Inn’s property. Lines were long at the local coffee shops with people wanting that warm drink, kids were playing in the parks, and everyone was talking about their wonderful Thanksgiving feast and anticipating the coming Christmas Season. It’s a fantastic event and great way to experience just what this wonderful mountain village has to offer!
