Said the Vail Daily: “Christmas on Broadway is so charming that if Norman Rockwell was still alive he’d paint it.” Eagle’s Christmas on Broadway transforms downtown Eagle into a Christmas village on the first Saturday of December. Christmas on Broadway started more than two decades after a group gathered for lunch at an Eagle Chamber of Commerce meeting, came up with the idea for a Christmas celebration in downtown Eagle. And it’s still going strong a quarter century later.
This year’s event will take place on Saturday, December 7, 2013. Parade starts at 5pm. Visit with Santa starting at 3:30pm and after the parade as well. Plus, the fun continues after the Parade in the Eagle Town Park with a Tree Lighting Ceremony, bonfire (if it snows, there will be a glow) and live entertainment from Hardscrabble Band.
