Christmas is exactly five months out, but it’s never too early to start planning!

Gaylord Rockies’ “ICE!,” the Aurora resort’s annual holiday tradition, will return Friday, Nov. 17.

This year the exhibition will use more than 2 million pounds of ice to celebrate the 1983 move, “A Christmas Story.”

Colored ice, clear ice and LED lights will be used to create 10 scenes from the movie, including the old man’s major award, Aunt Clara’s pink nightmare, the ultimate triple dog dare and more.

The exhibition will also have two-story-tall ice slides, ice tunnels and arches and a separate area dedicated to a Nativity scene.

Gaylord Rockies also announced its family-friendly cirque show is back for the 2023 holiday season.

“Cirque: Spirit of Christmas” returns for another year at the hotel’s Bubly Theater.

Gaylord Rockies said its other holiday season activities this year include a Naughty or Nice escape room, gingerbread decorating, elf training academy, scavenger hunt, Mistletoe Village with Mr. and Mrs. Claus, and Build-A-Bear Workshop.

The resort’s Christmas-season events run through Monday, Jan. 1, 2024.
