With the holidays fast approaching, you’re no doubt getting caught up in planning. Planning for time spent with friends and family — and the gifts they’ll be receiving.

But your plans might be different. Instead of braving the malls, long lines, or nasty traffic on Black Friday — you’re planning a getaway to a different kind of post-Thanksgiving event. A time to reflect on the freedoms we enjoy and the experiences we share. A time to celebrate the upcoming holidays (and for those giving gifts, to shop local!). A time spent in some of the most beautiful wild country America has to offer.

That wild country is our own Estes Park, Colorado! There’s already plenty of things to do here — but on November 29th, 2019, the town will be starting off the weekend with the one-of-a-kind Annual Catch the Glow Parade.

What is the Catch the Glow Parade?

Every year, as many as 20,000 visitors and locals line up on Elkhorn Avenue in Estes Park to enjoy a holiday parade like no other. You’ll see more than 40 participants ranging from custom floats to marching bands and specialty vehicles. Families enjoy spending the afternoon experiencing the parade, as well as seeing all that downtown Estes Park has to offer. You can also meet Santa… of course!

How do I attend the parade?

The parade is free to attend and welcomes all visitors. If you’re planning a holiday getaway in Colorado, make sure that your accommodations are as luxurious and beautiful as the nature that surrounds you. Windcliff vacation rental homes in Estes Park offer something for every visitor and every budget — so you can recharge, rest, relax, and celebrate in style and comfort.
