Breckenridge, CO celebrates Kingdom Days June 18-20, 2010
Historic Breckenridge, CO celebrates Kingdom Days this weekend in a nod to its early mining days of the late 1850s. Unintentionally left off the U.S. maps following its founding in 1859, Breckenridge became known as "Colorado's Kingdom" until its official incorporation in 1936.
Supported by a crazy weekend of activities, Kingdom Days in Breckenridge is now in its fourth year. Events include mobile outhouse races, mine tours, historic walking tours and an old-fashioned Wild West gun fight in the streets. Events all weekend long will be FREE and guests are encouraged to participate.
The Breckenridge Town Party kicks of the weekend of festivities Friday afternoon at the Riverwalk Center. There will be plenty of food and drink on hand, as well as free live music provided by Mountain Standard Time and Hot Buttered Rum. For more than 15 years the Town of Breckenridge has welcomed locals and visitors alike to mark the end of another long winter. And remember to be on time for the annual Town Photo!
The Breckenridge Kingdom Days calendar of events includes guided historic walking tours, free entry to the Barney Ford Museum, the home of an escaped slave who became a civil rights leader, the Summit Ski Museum which documents the first 100 years of skiing in Colorado, Country Boy Mine demonstrations, gold panning and much more.
