Tonight's entertainment includes a choir and musicians on the balcony, as well as an unexpected pair of tuba players on the roof. "The Christmas carols selected were all songs sung during the 1833-to-1849 time period at Bent's Old Fort [the real fort in southeastern Colorado on which the Fort's architecture is based]," notes Doran. And interestingly enough, they're classics that we still sing today: "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," "Joy to the World," "O Come All Ye Faithful," "Silent Night."
Light your farolito tonight from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the Fort, 19192 Highway 8 in Morrison; admission is free, but you might want to splurge on a Wild West dinner while you're there. Visit www.thefort.com or call 303-697-4771.
