About the Book

This book celebrates Golden Colorado’s annual holiday celebration. The text and photos were all contributed by Golden locals. Part of the proceeds will go to the Golden Chamber of Commerce to support Olde Golden Christmas. Sections include:

  • Preparations – scenes showing crews hanging the holiday lights and some of the other tasks that take place months before the show begins.
  • The Candlelight Walk – the lighting of the holiday lights and the celebrations that fill that evening
  • Olde Golden Christmas on Parade – photos showing the parade units and the audience watching the parades
  • Celebrations on the Avenue – photos of the horse-drawn carriages, the dog cart rides, carolers, shoppers, entertainment in the stores, and breakfast with Santa
  • Golden Christmas Traditions – Symphony and Choir concerts, Santa Claus Express at the Railroad Museum, Holiday Art Market at Foothills, and holiday plays at Miners Alley
  • Holiday Lighting – Beautiful photos of the holiday lights along Clear Creek and throughout Historic Downtown Golden.
