Ullr Fest: 50 Years of Fun for Main Street Breckenridge Properties

Anyone living along the Front Range who has missed visiting properties in Breckenridge Colorado during the zany days of Ullr Festivities can still plan to take in tonight’s festivities at the Breckenridge Riverwalk Center from 6 to 9 PM.  The eight-day celebration winds up again for residents of Breckenridge CO homes every day this week, January 6-12, 2013.

If you have only one chance to visit Breckenridge real estate during the Ullr Fest, come on up on Thursday for the super-fabulous and fun Ullr Parade.  The parade promises to be the wackiest and zaniest showroom of dedication to the Norse god of snow on record in the past 50 years of Ullr celebrations.  The parade features a menagerie of wild props and awe-inspiring floats, costumed participants, and a laughable show of Breckenridge creativity.  Warm-hearted displays rolling down Main Street end with a town bonfire and fireworks.

After tonight’s coronation, King David Love and Queen Cindy Love, active locals, will reign over the hilarious events of this week.  Monday at 3:30 PM begins Family Night of Nordic skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating, indoor activities, and a bonfire at the Gold Run Nordic Center.  Tuesday the Ullymipians will participate in competitions including group ski racing in the frying pan toss.  On Wednesday bachelors and bachelorettes participate in the Ullr Dating Game at 7 PM.

On Thursday night, Comedy Works performs at the Beaver Run Resort auditorium.  Finally, Saturday brings the Pond Hockey Tournament and the Ullr Fashion Show in all of its glory.

Ullr rhymes with “cooler”.  It all began in 1963 after the mountains decided to show their appreciation for receiving 300 inches of snow.  This year’s parade through our little mountain town will be featured on Travel Channel’s show “Edge of America.”
