December and the holidays are such a special time of year, and there is so much to do and see with your family its unreal! We know it can be a bit challenging to navigate all the different towns and cities in the Northern Colorado to find and remember everything that is going on, so we’ve gone ahead and made a convenient list of free and paid events throughout the area to help make your holiday season sparkle! We’ve got you covered from Fort Collins to Windsor and Boulder to Denver with a list of our favorites! Wish we had time to do them all, but, for the ones we are able to go to, we sure hope to see you and your family’s smiling faces there! Wishing you the happiest of holidays,
the Ace of Diamonds Painting Team
