Bring in the New Year with a boom! Breckenridge hosts a celebration every year that gets everyone in the mood to celebrate in style. At 5 p.m., registration starts for the Peak 9 glow worm parade. Kids will ski down Peak 9 (green terrain only) in a long formation with glow sticks, giving off the appearance of a New Year’s glow worm. Registration will take place at the Beaver Run Ski and Ride School, and kids ages 5–13 are encouraged to participate. At 6 p.m., enjoy a Breckenridge tradition as skiers and boarders from the Breckenridge Ski Resort kick off the evening with a dazzling luminary procession, parading from the top of Peak 9 down American to The Village at Breckenridge. The best views of this parade are from anywhere you can see Peak 9. At 9 p.m. the town will light up the sky with a celebration of fireworks (visible from most spots around town) shot off from an area between Peaks 8 and 9. All events are weather permitting

Ullr Fest celebrates 52 years and Breckenridge invites snow lovers of all ages to join the party. During Ullr Fest, don’t be surprised to see horned Viking hats adorning the heads of skiers and snowboarders, Ullympic competitors flinging frying pans for prizes, more than 12,000 Ullr enthusiasts filling the streets for the Ullr Parade and crazy float participants skiing off jumps on Main Street or gliding along town in a hot tub. Rejoice with Ullr himself. Ullr is ready for a good party. In Norse mythology Ullr (pronounced Oool-er) was the winter god. He was the son of Sif and the stepson of Thor, the “God of Thunder.” Ullr loved the cold, and delighted in traveling over the country on his skis or skates. He also delighted in the chase, and pursued his game through the Northern Forests.
