The wonder of the holidays is swooping through the mountains with the Welcome Winter Family Carnival in Warren Station at Keystone followed by the Lighting of River Run on Saturday, Nov. 29. Beginning at 3 p.m., parents can cozy in the Warren Station ballroom with live music while the kids enjoy carnival favorites such as face painting, a bounce house, original crafts and giant games.

Treat yourself to a complimentary bag of kettle corn and a tasty cup of hot chocolate with all the fun fixings, while supplies last. Mocktails, cocktails, Welcome Winter mixers and beer specials make for a festive, all-ages affair until 6 p.m., and admission is free.

Chris Thompson and the Coral Creek String Band add a little kick to the Warren Station party with original music from 3 to 6 p.m. Thompson, guitar/vocals, shares the stage with some of the top acoustic players in Colorado today including Zebulon Bowles on fiddle, Jordan Ramsey on mandolin/vocals and Andrew Bonnis on bass/vocals. With the release of his new record, “The Road Ahead” (produced by Bill Nershi of the String Cheese Incident), Thompson has emerged on the Colorado music scene as a song-writing force appealing to traditional bluegrass, new-grass and jam-band audiences alike.

Meanwhile, the sweetest pieces of the North Pole are celebrated as River Run Village transforms into a festive winter wonderland from 5 to 7 p.m. Join Santa, along with the Dancing, Magic Candy Cane for the annual Lighting of River Run. Take a stroll through some of River Run’s unique shops to get a head start on your shopping, or sing along to classic Christmas carols with the Summit Choral Society, satisfy your seasonal sugar fix with complimentary, scrumptious cookies from Mary’s Mountain Cookies and warm up with toasty hot chocolate from Keystone Resort. Then, experience the magic of the lights and countdown to illuminate River Run’s star tree at 6 p.m.

The Keystone Neighbourhood Co. and summitcove.com will also be on site, handing out special antler headgear. So, don’t forget your camera and cell phones to capture that elusive greeting card shot amidst the River Run lights and the Big Man granting special wishes. After all, he’s making his list and checking it twice.
