Winterfest returns to Colfax with fireworks, family fun

 

Winterfest returns to Colfax on Saturday, Dec. 11, with a great line-up of family fun to launch the holiday season in style. Find yourself in the heart of Colfax, with its central historic town core sprinkled with festive vendors, Christmas carolers, and a holiday parade. Be sure to stay for the traditional Christmas tree lighting and a grand fireworks display finale — all set in this little gem of a truly Western railroad town.

Start the evening off sipping hot cider or chocolate while browsing for holiday goodies. Take a picture with Santa, and then witness the annual tree lighting, followed by the famous Colfax Lions Christmas Parade. Browse for one-of-a-kind holiday gifts, then cap off the evening with a fireworks show.
