4:00 pm – Bonfire lights up in the base area – feel free to strip down your tree and add it to our sacrificial bonfire

Bring the kids to the 3rd floor of the lodge 3:30-5:30 pm for face painting, cookie decorating and more. Hot drinks and grab and go meals and snacks will be available at our Main Street Market and Eatery, and the Side Stash Cafe’ will be pouring beer and wine alongside their specialty coffee drinks, with additional food choices for hungry kids and adults alike. Local band, Solstice, will set up in the “Family Zone” entertaining the young and young at heart with their kid centered tunes, 3:30-5:30.
As the lifts close, we’ll fire up our gas fire pit and propane heaters at the base area plaza to warm party goers as they sip hot chocolate, cider or beer and wine, all available at the Brundage tent. HotterWater will be rocking under the big white base area tent, 4:30-7:30. Self described as specializing in “upbeat rockabilly/bluegrass/country” music, HotterWater is a local favorite. Click here for a sample of their latest gig.
The festivities and fireworks are free, and there will be plenty of standing room to watch the light show in the base area, on outdoor balconies or our new plaza. Feel free to bring a lawn chair if you’d like to relax during the light show and please dress for winter mountain weather conditions!
Smoky’s Bar & Grill will be open late with a limited menu and seating preference will go to those who are dining and purchasing drinks.
Remember, our lower lot has plenty of room for parking and we will run two shuttles between the lower lot and the lodge, 4:30-7:30 for your convenience. Or avoid parking altogether and enjoy a free ride on our Brundage Express. We have added two additional runs leaving the mountain at 7 and 8 pm for this special event.
Our torchlight parade has reached capacity; thanks to all who signed up early!
