Breckenridge looked like a scene from a holiday cartoon special on Saturday night, Dec. 14, as the Chamber of Commerce hosted the annual Christmas Parade with the theme “Another Charlie Brown Christmas.” Dozens of vehicles paraded down Walker Street, many sporting Snoopy’s dog house, Charlie Brown and Lucy look-alikes, and other icons from the animated TV special.

After bad weather forced last year’s “A Charlie Brown Christmas” parade to be canceled, the Breckenridge Chamber of Commerce decided to give the beloved parade theme another chance this year.

This year’s winner of the Best Float award was Copperleaf Properties. Floats were judged on the interpretation of the theme (“Another Charlie Brown Christmas”), creativity, and originality.
