Christmas Parade
On December 5, dozens of residents bundled up against the cold and lined 20th Avenue in Blairmore for the annual Christmas in the Mountains Parade. Municipal officials handed out candy to revelers who warmed themselves by a fire before Mayor Blair Painter lit up the community’s Christmas tree. Some shops around town stayed open late allowing residents to get in their Christmas shopping.
