Christmas in Denver

My favorite time of the year in Downtown Denver is during the Holiday season.  The buildings and the 16th Street Mall are decorated and it’s always very festive downtown.  I thought today I’d share with you a few images from the Denver’s City and County Building and from Union Station.  They are always decorated so nicely and have a wonderful event for the initial lighting of the buildings for the Holidays.  These images are fairly recent, but tomorrow I’m going to reintroduce one of my favorite holiday photos.  I have it in my galleries, but I haven’t shared it since starting my blog.

If you are interested, here is a video of the lighting ceremony that occurs every evening at the Denver City and County Building.  It’s quite a show with the lights of the building choreographed to the holiday music.  This video is not professional quality, but will give you a look at the festive event.

  • These are just fantastic. My favorite kind of photo is a colorful one (even though I have been doing a ton of black and white as of late). Beautiful shots and happy holidays to you and your family buddy.

  • These images are wonderful Rick. They convey the excitement and color of the holiday season.

  • Wow – that city and county building looks amazing! Great capture, Rick 🙂

  • Now that’s a serious light display! Beautiful Rick!

  • Incredible colors here Rick. Very nice.

  • Wow these lights are incredible. Beautiful series of shots Rick.

  • Amanda

    I had NO IDEA that the city and county building had lights set to music. Is that every evening? What time? Where do I find information about that?

    Beautiful photos, as always

    • Amanda, Thanks! They start at 6:00pm every evening from now to New Years. After the light show the “church bells” play music all evening as well without the choreographed lights.

  • That really is quite a light show! Tremendous colours and you’ve done a fantastic job capturing them.

  • Great set of images Rick, so colourful and vibrant!

  • Absolutely beautiful shots, Rick! Love those vibrant colors and the light show (video) is wonderful. Great post, my friend. 🙂
