Breckenridge Ullr Fest Parade set for Jan. 12

DAILY NEWS STAFF REPORT

The Ullr Parade is set for Jan. 12 at 4:30 p.m., but the entry deadline for participating is Jan. 9. Those interested can register online at http://www.gobreck.com or contact Sally Croker of the Breckenridge Resort Chamber at (970) 453-2913, ext. 203. Prizes will be awarded to the first- through third-place floats. Now in its 43rd year, Ullr Fest aims to worship the mythical Norse God of Snow. During the event, and particularly the parade, horned Viking hats adorn the heads of skiers and snowboarders, Ullympic competitors fling frying pans for prizes, and more than 12,000 Ullr enthusiasts fill the streets while crazy float participants ski off kickers on Main Street or glide along town in a hot tub.For more information on Ullr history, the week’s schedule and updated information, visit gobreck.com or call (970) 453-5579.
