15th Annual Holiday Headframe Lighting 

When: Nov. 23-Dec. 31 2012
Phone: 689-2675

Tommyknockers are not elves that you want on your bad side. These spirits of deceased miners can either be friends or foes to all miners in the shafts. If the former, they'll knock on the walls of the mine shaft if a cave-in is about to occur, hence: "If you hear the Tommyknockers a-knockin', don't come a-walkin'." Hopefully when you're on the self-guided Holiday Headframe Lighting Tour ( tonight in and around Victor and Cripple Creek, you won't have any bad run-ins with the mischievous little elves. If you're still into holiday stuff, catch this last day of the tour, which features headframes — real mining artifacts standing over 20 feet tall — lit up with Yuletide characters. — Kiki Lenihan
