In the darkness of winter while we are eagerly awaiting the return of sunshine a magical opportunity arises, the celebration of fire!
Get out of town and head to the mountains for winter Fire and Ice celebrations! Just an hour and half outside of Denver in the European-inspired wonderland of Breckenridge you can enjoy old world architecture that feels just like a snowy German village. The breathtaking, snow-covered mountains provide a beautiful backdrop to the tinkling lights and warm fires lit around town.
The International Snow Sculpture Competition in Breckenridge means you’ll be surrounded by different languages and cultures, from China to Turkey, Mexico to Quebec.
Then just a few weeks later head to Loveland Colorado for the sweetest festival of fire, ice, and fireworks during their Valentine’s weekend! Carriage rides through the sleepy town of Loveland leads to pure romance and a spin on a fairy tale carousel beautifully set in the middle of town.
Don’t forget to get on the hour long wait list at Mo’Betta Gumbo! The gorgeous Creole restaurant in the center of town, with delicious gumbo, fried catfish, and Cafe du Monde coffee and beignets you can have a bit of New Orleans right here in Colorado.
