The 4th Annual Manitou Christmas Parade kicks off the holiday season for all of us and there will be no better way to experience this than spending it in Manitou Springs. Come out and shop and stay for dinner and enjoy the parade!
Toys 4 Tots
The Manitou Springs Christmas Parade will ask everyone to get into the spirit of giving by bringing a new, unwrapped toy to the parade. Volunteers from Toys for Tots will be marching in the parade and will collect the toys from parade goers.
Manitou Springs goes all out in decorating for the Holiday Season! Come wander the streets under the colorful lights, and listen to the Carolers as they wander the Avenue.
The Parade has moved to December 11th this year and is promoting Manitou as a Holiday destination. For over a century people have come to visit Colorado’s first Destination, from Mountain Utes who came to Manitou to drink the spring waters to the numerous tourism pioneers who built the Manitou Incline, The Cog Railway, the Cliff House and the many fine attractions that bring thousands of guests to Manitou.
This year Manitou Springs will be the host to the regions Christmas Kickoff Event. “The Manitou Christmas Parade.” Our Theme is “Christmas Begins in Manitou.” Christmas Begins in Manitou is a promotion capped by an event, a night time Christmas Parade on Friday evening 6:00 pm. December 14th!
