Mountain Mardi Gras
Here, the snow (some 300 inches annually) flies and locals head to the streets for a family-friendly parade on Fat Tuesday. It may not be Mardi Gras in the traditional sense; however this mountain town knows how to party. Get to Breckenridge early (the Saturday before Mardi Gras day) for the Mountain Masquerade Ball.
Dew Tour Street Event
Now that Dew Tour has three stops -- beach, city and mountain -- Breckenridge is the only stop for skiers and snowboarders. In addition to pipe and slope competitions on the mountain, organizers introduced the Streetstyle event to a huge crowd in 2012.
