Spending the Holidays in BreckenridgeMelissa Dugan
Located at the base of Tenmile Mountain Range, in the Rocky Mountains, sits the uniquely wonderful town of Breckenridge, Colorado. It’s known across the country and even around the world for its beauty, its year-round alpine activities, and its unique gold rush history. Understandably, Breckenridge welcomes thousands of visitors each year, and year-round, it has much to offer. In the winter season and during the holidays especially, Breckenridge attracts plenty of tourists, and this is really no wonder – during the holiday season, there is so much to see and do.
At Pharmstrong™, we are proud to call Breckenridge home and we know that this town has something to offer for everyone. In the spirit of helping visitors experience all that Breckenridge has to offer during the holiday season, we are happy to recommend a few unique events visitors can enjoy:
- The Lighting of Breckenridge and the Santa Race: This is an extremely popular holiday kick-off event in the Breckenridge area. It usually occurs the first weekend of December and often includes hundreds of Santas running down Main Street. Stay in town for caroling and watch the official lighting of the holiday decorations in Blue River Plaza. Families will enjoy all of these events and be able to have a personal visit with Santa, walk in the Holiday Dog Parade with a furry family member, and even participate in a Reindeer Run for kids 12 and under. There are plenty of fun events for family members of all ages!
- Ullr Fest: Of course, we would be remiss not to mention skiing in a town like Breckinridge, known across the country and around the world for its beautiful ski slopes. During the holiday season, skiing is more than just skiing. In fact, Breckenridge is home to a unique, one-of-a-kind event called Ullr Fest. Ullr Fest is an event sure to please snow lovers of all ages as well as anyone who enjoys history, mythology, or simply having a good time. Ullr Fest is truly a trademark Breckenridge event. It is an annual celebration of the Viking people and specifically Ullr, the winter god of Norse mythology. Skiers and snowboarders alike are encouraged to wear their Viking gear as they take to the slopes. You may see skiers racing by wearing horned Viking helmets while other more temperature tolerant individuals are plunging into the freezing Maggie Pond as part of the festivities. A massive bonfire takes place where vacationers and locals alike gather around and join in ancient Norse chants. There are many other enjoyable and fun activities that are part of Ullr Fest as well. Whether you are skiing, enjoying the bonfire, the parade, or any number of other events that make this festival so special, it is truly something to see and experience.
- The Pharmstrong™ CBD Sample Bar: If you are in Breckenridge for the holidays, another unique “Colorado” activity is to check out the well-known Pharmstrong™ CBD Sample Bar. You may have heard much about the “wonder supplement” known as CBD and may have been eager to try it for yourself. Fortunately, at Pharmstrong™, you can do exactly that. While Pharmstrong™ proudly sells its premium CBD products to customers across the country, their unique flagship store is located in Breckenridge at 107 N. Main St. The store is actually housed in a historic log cabin that is the second oldest building in the entire town. Originally constructed in 1862, the log cabin was once a laundromat for gold miners in the area and is a long-standing testament to Breckenridge’s famed gold rush history. Pharmstrong™ is a fitting business for this storied pioneer building, as Pharmstrong™ is a new kind of modern-day pioneer – a CBD pioneer. Pharmstrong™ is passionate about helping customers who visit the Breckenridge area experience all that CBD has to offer, and in fact, offers the only CBD sample bar in all of Colorado. Visitors can step into the warm and cozy store and sample a variety of products. They can even bring their favorite furry friend along to enjoy a CBD dog treat! Visitors from across the country enjoy talking with Pharmstrong™’s very knowledgeable staff, and trying some of the many wonderful, American CBD products. After finding products they love, visitors can purchase some either for themselves or as gifts for those they love. CBD products make wonderful gifts at the holidays, and the Pharmstrong™ staff is always willing and able to help direct customers toward excellent gifting options.

Many restaurants and local bars offer live music as well as an excellent assortment of delicious food and beverage options.
