Saoirse Charis-Graves will be leading a walk tonight to enjoy the holiday lights downtown.  Everyone is invited and encouraged to come!

Golden Colorado Holiday Lights - Olde Golden Christmas

The holiday lights along Clear Creek in downtown Golden are especially bold and bright this year. Please join us for a stroll through the twinkling beauty along Clear Creek, in Parfet Park, and through downtown Golden.

This walk will be a relaxed one-hour loop at a conversational pace. We will take in the amazing array of colors and lights and enjoy the creativity of our brilliant light-hangers. Depending on the desires of the group, we may gather at a nearby Golden establishment to partake of our “beverage of choice.”

This walk is intended to provide a fun, easy-going, communal and social on-foot experience to finish the week. It’s also a great way to meet other walking friends. We will leave NO LATER than 6:35pm. We should be done walking by 7:45pm. You can, of course, leave early if you need to.

Meeting Place:  Windy Saddle Café  |  1110 Washington Avenue  |  Map
Mileage: 2-2.5 miles
Difficulty: Easy
Weather: We are in the Winter season, so please come prepared with enough layers and/or waterproof gear to keep yourself comfortable. As the conditions underfoot are not completely predictable, it would be good to bring along any traction devices (e.g., Yaktrax, Microspikes, Krokers) if you have them. Hand warmers will be provided if desired.

Schedule Note: We will meet at 6:30pm in front of the cafe, make introductions, answer questions and lightly warm up. Restroom: Public restroom is available nearby. Note: These walks are very informal and give us all unique opportunities to connect with one another, with ourselves and with our surroundings
