Be sure to come early to get a good spot to view the parade which includes the Queen and Rex who were crowned at the Bacchus Ball. If you do come early, keep an eye out for a few of the Breckenridge Resort Chamber Ambassadors who will be walking around Main Street selling Mardi Gras beads – As Krystal is a BRC Ambassador, we will be participating in the festivities and will be selling beads again this year. All proceeds from the bead sales go to the Al Chaffee Memorial Ambassadors Scholarship Fund which provides college scholarships to graduating seniors from Summit High School.
We look forward to seeing you at the parade and selling you some beads for a good cause!
