Today’s top five things to do in Summit County

Breckenridge “officially” transforms into a holiday scene on Dec. 5 with the Lighting of Breckenridge and Race of the Santas, when runners and walkers don Santa suits to benefit Adopt an Angel Summit County. Free hot cocoa and cookies keep revelers warm until sunset. After, the real Santa Claus lights the town tree and visits with families. Stop by the Handmade Holiday Market Dec. 4-6 in the Breckenridge Arts District for hand-crafted gifts from local artisans. Go to for more information.
