Niwot’s Holiday Season Kicks off with Enchanted Evening & Holiday Parade
BY LIZ EMMETT-MATTOX
This year, Enchanted Evening and the annual Holiday Parade through Niwot will be held on the same weekend. Enchanted Evening is Friday Nov. 23, the day after Thanksgiving. On Saturday morning, Nov. 24, Santa will join the Holiday Parade through Niwot.
In the past, the Holiday Parade has been held on the first Saturday of December, but after getting snowed-out last year, NBA organizer Linda Klueber of Niwot Interiors said that they decided to move the date up a week and combine all the holiday activities into one weekend. “It just seemed like a good way to commence Niwot’s holiday season.”

Changes to this year’s Niwot Nostalgia Day were generally very well received by attendees and Second Avenue business owners. Terry Larsen, treasurer of the Niwot Community Association said, “It was a great day. The weather cooperated, and there were lots of people out enjoying themselves.”
One reason for changing the schedule and having the parade and booths open later in the day was to make the logistics easier on the volunteers by concentrating more people in one place at one time. Larsen said, “One of our goals was to make sure that the booths are profitable, and it looked like they were consistently busy the whole day.”
The day began with a pancake breakfast at Niwot Market with music provided by the Niwot Community Semi-Marching Free Grange Band. With the parade moved to late afternoon, attendance at the breakfast was down from previous years. The breakfast raised $250 for the Niwot Children’s Park.
