Denver has been lighting the The City and County Building during the holiday season since 1926.
This year is no different, and Mayor Hancock will flip the switch to the lights tonight.
Driving past the building on winter nights puts a smile on the face of everyone but Oscar the Grouch or Scrooge. Head downtown during the next month, and check it out.
A few years ago, the city made a switch to LED lights for energy efficiency, and it looks just as beautiful as ever. With nearly 600 lights, the building glows in multicolored splendor.
Yahoo Travel named Denver the 4th best place to view holiday lights, behind only NY City’s Rockefeller Center, Disney World in Orlando and the famous Newport Boat Parade in Southern California. Come see the lights in Denver and prepare to ohh and ahh!
And don’t forget to shop local this weekend. Support Denver’s small businesses.
