|Address||Downtown Boulder, Boulder, CO|
Begin the holidays in style at the annual Christmas light switch on in Colorado's most populous city.
On November 17th this year, local shops and hotels in Boulder will mark the start of the festive season by switching on the Christmas illuminations.
Regular features will return, including a countdown by the main man himself - Santa Claus. He will flick the switch at the Boulder Country Courthouse, the Pearl Street Mall and the star on Flagstaff Mountain.
There will be plenty going on for everyone to enjoy in Downtown Boulder and the area is known for its locally-owned businesses and fine restaurants.
Pearl Street Mall, which was built in 1976, is a popular destination for tourists visiting the city, as well as a regular haunt for students studying at the University of Colorado. Boasting shops, cafes, restaurants and much of the city's nightlife, it is the perfect spot to catch a whole range of street entertainment, have a drink and eat some gourmet-quality food.
This Christmas, families staying at the Millennium Harvest Hotel Boulder will not want to miss the city's spectacular 'Switch on the Holidays' event.
