If Elf isn’t the best Christmas movie of all-time, it has to be close. So as we get closer to Christmas, what better way to celebrate than watching the movie on a huge outdoor screen, while doing other Christmassy things? 

The free outdoor showing of Elf happens at Denver’s McGregor Square is this Saturday (Dec. 16th). It all kicks off at 5:30, on a 66-foot LED screen, and is previewed by a Buddy the Elf impersonator.

You can stay warm by grabbing a personal s’mores kit for use at the firepits and/or some warm seasonal cocktails at the pop-up Sleigh Bar.

Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus will also be on hand for photos inside the attached Milepost Zero food hall from 5 to 7 p.m.

There will also be ice skating in McGregor Square’s rink while DJs play top holiday hits, classics and more.

McGregor Square is located at 1901 Wazee St. in Denver.
