DENVER – The Rocky Mountain region’s largest holiday lighting event is coming back for the 28th year to the Mile High City.

Other festivities include a chance to meet Santa and Mrs. Claus, who will take the spotlight as she spins a captivating magical tale that brings the holiday season to life, while you get cozy with s’mores or a signature drink like a Mrs. Claus Cookie-Cream Dream.
