Thanksgiving weekend holds a lot of fun events for visitors, including a hockey tournament, English High Tea (Christmas style) and plenty of Christmas-oriented events.

Christmas Parade

ChristmasThe Cheyenne Christmas Parade is one of the highlights of the Thanksgiving weekend for most people in Cheyenne, from children to adults.

Each year, the parade features about 140 floats done up in Christmas regalia, and even a float for jolly ol' St. Nick, as well as horse-drawn wagons, clowns, antique cars, and colorful marching bands. The parade lasts about an hour and 15 minutes, and is considered one of the finest Christmas Parades in the Rocky Mountain area.

The hour-long parade kicks off at 5:30 p.m. at West 17th Street and Carey Avenue. It marches north on Carey to 24th Street, then turns right to Capitol Avenue. The parade makes another right on Capitol and heads back down to 16th Street. It makes another right on 16th, and ends at Pioneer Avenue.Holiday English High Tea

Celebrate the holidays by enjoying a Holiday English High Tea at the Nagle-Warren Mansion, 222 E. 17th St. This historic home is decked out in traditional Victorian fashion while Jake Martin regales you with holiday music on the antique concert grand piano.

The tea menu fills a 12-foot dining room table and is served by costumed waitresses. You will sit at individual tea tables set with fine English china and silver service.

Holiday Tea is served Friday and Saturday with the first seating at 1:30 p.m. and the last seating at 3:40 p.m. The price is $18.95 plus tax and gratuity.
