The Town of Windsor’s holiday celebrations kick off with the Ugly Sweater Dash and Windsor Wonderland on Saturday, Dec. 1.

The Ugly Sweater Dash begins at 9 a.m. at Boardwalk Park. The dash is a 2.25 mile loop around Windsor Lake with prizes for top finishers and the ugliest holiday sweater, as well as a beanie for each participant. To register, visit windsorgov.com/recreg or call 970-674-3500. Boardwalk Park is located at 100 N. 5th St.

After the race, Windsor Wonderland will kick off at noon with the arrival of Santa. After his arrival, Santa will be available for professional pictures, free of charge, at his tent at Boardwalk Park.

The celebration is free and open to the public, and includes a host of holiday activities such as hay rides, live holiday performances at the Market Pavilion, kids activities, free hot chocolate and s’mores, and much more at Boardwalk Park.

At sunset, the community is invited to gather in front of the historic Boardwalk Park Museum’s Train Depot to enjoy a tree lighting ceremony and caroling.

The schedule of events includes:
