Denver leaders convened on Monday (November 23, 2015) to launch their annual $1 million Mile High Holidays marketing campaign — one of the biggest local tourism advertising efforts of the year. Funded by Visit Denver, the city of Denver and more than two dozen tourism partners, this annual event was created to bring people to the area during the traditionally slow month of December.
The official “Mile High Holidays” kick-off took place in the Helen Bonfils Theatre Complex on the Stage Theatre where Denver’s Honorable Mayor Hancock “officially” got into the holiday spirit with Ebenezer Scrooge and Tiny Tim , actors from the DCPA performance of “A Christmas Carol.”
With the “snow” gently falling on the set, the mayor and Tiny Tim put the finishing touches on the Christmas Tree on the stage, formally welcoming Mile High Holidays to Colorado.
