For a little more than a week at the end of November, Revely Vail celebrates the magic and wonder of winter with a lineup of events that are sure to get you in the spirit of the holiday season. Picture snow falling on Vail Village while you stroll through the streets with your family, hot chocolate or gluwhein in hand, admiring the decorative lights on display at local businesses. You'll have the opportunity to do that during the nightly Explosion of Lights walk. Foodies will enjoy the cooking classes, where they'll cook gourmet dishes under the guidance of professional chefs and, perhaps, find a new dish to wow holiday guests. Another highlight of the week is the 5 Point Film Festival, which includes screenings of short films featuring winter adventures from around the globe. There's also a parade, a gingerbread contest and ice-skating celebrations. Events are held throughout Vail and Lionshead Villages during Thanksgiving week, and it all wraps up the weekend after Thanksgiving with a Kris Kringle market, live music and a tree-lighting celebration.
