Denver is a festive place to be during the holidays. Right after Thanksgiving, the city comes alive with fabulous light displays, fun wintery events and plenty of holiday cheer. Our Cherry Creek hotel is perfectly located so you can enjoy all of these Denver traditions that the whole family will love. Book a holiday getaway to Denver and enjoy these great events:
Blossoms of Light
Kick off the holiday season at the Denver Botanical Garden for this family-friendly tradition. Stroll through the thousands of sparkling lights and elaborate garden displays. Highlights include the grand illuminated O’Fallon Perennial Walk and the Romantic Gardens. Tasty treats and warm beverages will be available, and select evenings will host live entertainment. The event opens on November 27 and runs through January 2, 2016. It runs every day (including Christmas and New Year’s) from 5:30 to 9:30 pm, and tickets are $11 for adults.
Downtown Denver Grand Illumination
Winter in the City returns for another fun month of lights across the city. Denver Union Station lights up for the holidays on the opening evening of November 27th. The Downtown Denver Grand Illumination event is a highlight of the post-Thanksgiving festivities.
Spanning over 70 acres on the Denver Zoo grounds, this event will light up the night with live entertainment, Santa and his elves, and illuminated animal sculptures everywhere you look. The event runs from December 4 until January 3rd from 5:30 to 9 pm each night.
