Breckenridge, CO Colorado

If you missed your chance to build an Ullr Parade float or you want to revise your Ullr float for another wacky parade, now is your chance. It is that time of year again to decorate your vehicle of choice as a float for Breckenridge’s annual Mardi Gras procession at 4:30 p.m. on Fat Tuesday, Feb. 24 on Main Street. Keeping with Breckenridge tradition, everyone is welcome, creativity is strongly encouraged and participation is free! This year, the Breckenridge Resort Chamber will offer HUGE cash prizes for the winning floats: 1st $500, 2nd $300 and 3rd place $200.

Floats may be as simple as a decorated vehicle or as elaborate as a flatbed extravaganza. Parade participants can contact the Breckenridge Resort Chamber to order beads at a bulk rate.

Preregistration for the parade is strongly encouraged. Call the Breckenridge Resort Chamber at (970) 453-5074 or e-mail before Friday.
