BRECKENRIDGE, Colo, - Jan. 13, 2011 - Snow has been falling in Breckenridge, Colo. – in the way of 228” as of Jan. 13 – and the 2011 Ullr Fest Parade on Breckenridge’s crowded Main Street paid honor to Ullr, the Norse god of snow. Some 36 quirky floats, more than ever before in the parade’s 48 years, were showcased in the annual event.
“The judges were blown away by the creativity,” said the BRC event's director. “Don’t be surprised to see new awards next year. Everyone really enjoyed the efforts to make this the biggest Ullr parade ever.”
Other parade highlights included the traditional but unofficial Ullr gold underwear streakers; the highest pedicab operation in the world; Shake Weight, “Get Hard in just 6 minutes per day;” and plenty of creative Ullr characters.
For more information on Ullr Fest and Breckenridge’s upcoming events, the Budweiser International Snow Sculpture Championships and Mardi Gras, contact the Breckenridge Resort Chamber at 877.593.5260. For those who built Ullr floats, keep in mind they can be easily retrofitted for the upcoming Mardi Gras parade.
