The day after Thanksgiving is a big day for those that live in the quiet Denver suburb of Littleton, Colorado. Unbeknownst to many Denver residents, there are actually two Littleton‘s. There is “Old Littleton” and then there is “Littleton“. Old Littleton is bordered by Broadway and Santa Fe and Belleview and Ridge Road.
This small area is rich with the neighborhood feel of the first half of the twentieth century. Neighbors shovel the walks of the elderly, recipes are exchanged at the supermarket, and town festivals harken the coming of each season. This is the case with the annual Candlelight Walk and Tree Lighting Ceremony that takes place every year on the day after Thanksgiving.
As the historic Main Street is closed to thru traffic at 5 pm, the fun begins. Santa will make his appearance in parade style and his procession is marked by the illumination of the trees lining the street. One lucky child will have their name drawn to assist Santa in throw
ing the switch, lighting the large tree in town. Once the canopy is fully lit, Santa makes his way to Bradford Autobody, where one of several free cider booths are in operation. The Big Man, and a few of his trusty reindeer, will be available to children and photo opportunities until 7 p.m.
In addition to all of this seasonal glee, participants can also enjoy the buskers, flame eaters, and musicians on hand in various locations. Festival-goers can also purchase a candle for $0.50Shop keepers throw wide their doors and plan to stay open late.
This festival is one of Littleton‘s best. It has a palpably nostalgic feel that transports even the grumpiest of Scrooge’s.
