How early will you be getting up on on the day after Thanksgiving? Will you be hitting up "Black Friday" sales, or maybe you'll be getting your gang up to Estes for one of the greatest parades around?

It's one of the brightest and best traditions in Northern Colorado when it comes to the holidays. Estes Park's "Catch the Glow" Parade. If you've been to the event in very "wintery" evenings, you'll be please to know the forecast looks great.

The Town of Estes Park is expecting upwards of 20,000 people to take to Elkhorn Avenue that night. Over 40 "floats" will be rolling down the street, bringing the holiday spirit to those who've been waiting for the parade. They'll be wrapped in blankets, with thermoses of hot cocoa (probably) and (hopefully) a little chair.


Hand-crafted specialty floats, marching bands, fire trucks, maybe even The Big Guy himself will be a part of the annual event. It's going to be a beautiful evening in one of Colorado's most magical places, during the magical time of the year.
