Although this is not the typical season we see the glow of the Flagstaff star. the Boulder Chamber has announced that it will be lighting the star to “raise the hopes” of Boulderites during these trying times.

The Flagstaff star has sat on the east side of Flagstaff Mountain since 1947, putting people in the holiday spirit and spreading joy through its beauty. There have been countless wishes made upon this star, and residents can look up during their isolation and wish for the health and safety of their friends, family, community, and fellow humans.
