Snowshoe Making Class

Join expert Aaron “Hutch” Hutchings in making your very own snowshoes. This class will take you step-by-step in making your own set of snowshoes. You will leave class with both the finished product and skills to make more.

Aaron “Hutch” Hutchings is a Colorado native, veteran, and father of four. He was raised in the Rocky Mountains by a real mountain man and hunting guide he called Grandpa. His love for adventure was first sparked by his grandfather’s teaching and stories. This spark was blown into flame in the Boy Scouts and fanned to a full-on bonfire in the Marine Corps.

Golden’s Candlelight Walk 2024



Experience the beauty of the holiday season with a candlelit walk down Washington Avenue in historic Golden, Colorado. Sing carols with neighbors and friends and marvel as the street is illuminated by thousands of glowing candles and the warmth of the festive, small-town holiday atmosphere. Many of the shops along Washington Avenue are open and there are hot cider, cocoa, and outdoor cafes to enjoy along the way. At the conclusion of the walk, the “switch” for Golden’s 45,000-holiday lights along Clear Creek and throughout downtown will be flipped, marking the official start to Golden’s holiday season. 

Golden History Museum will be open with extended evening hours and ample opportunity to shop for holiday gifts, including History Park honey. Additionally, a blacksmithing demonstration will be held at Golden History Park. Don’t forget to pick up a roasted chestnut provided by Kiwanis Club of Golden! Admission is always free.
