We don’t want you and your family to miss one second of holiday fun, so we have compiled a list of unique activities and events that will help you make this holiday season the best one yet! Mark your calendars for the following Fort Collins holiday celebrations, and when you’re finished partaking in all the holiday fun, make plans to stop in for some more celebrating at Lost Prairie Winery:
November 24 - December 17: Downton Santa’s Shopping Quest
If you plan to do any shopping in Downtown Fort Collins this holiday season, you will want to make sure to participate in this fun activity for all ages - the Downtown Santa Shopping Quest! 30 Downtown businesses will be hiding specially named Santa Claus figurines and a Gold Star somewhere within their business. Participants will need to find all 30 figurines and write their names on the provided “Santa Quest Scavenger Sheet”. Sheets will be turned in to any participating business, and will be entered to win Downtown Gift Cards worth $100, $200, & $500!!! The Santa’s will be out November 24-December 17, and the drawing for the Gift Card prizes will take place on December 21st!
