Breckenridge’s 2016 carnival features a Fat Tuesday (February 9) parade on Main Street, and it all starts at 4:30 p.m. We’re bringing out the best of last year’s party — fire dancers and larger-than-life puppets — for a full evening of fun.
February 9, 2016: Mardi Gras in the Mountains
Hang out on Main Street to see floats and colorful characters handing trinkets to the crowd. Beads will abound as the parade makes way to Main Street Station, where the gumbo will be hot and the hurricanes will be strong. We’ll get the dancing going with live music, and come late-night, the party will continue at restaurants and bars around town. Want to put together a costume? Check out Summit Thrift and Treasure at 1745 Airport Rd. in Breckenridge.
