summer seems to bring out the crazy of this wonderful city. this article highlights some of the most outrageous, cooky, off the wall happenings the mile high city has to offer!
one thing i’m most looking forward to being a part of? one of the weekly denver cruiser rides! these crazy, costumed rides around downtown denver are apparently a HUGE hit and have been since they started in denver a number of years ago. after having stopped at a few key locations around the city, the ride ends with a circle of death – a small but intense round about of crazy bikers. rumor has it the craziest of bikers even dare to circle against the normal flow of traffic.. i think i’ll have to see the madness to believe it myself.
how about a trip to the county fair? who doesn’t love pie eating competitions, robot wars, paper airplane competitions, skits from casa bonita, speed texting competitions, food trucks and oh i cannot even imagine how much more! sunday of the fair is titled ‘viva denver’ and it’s ‘celebrando la diversidad de denver’, HOW AWESOME! some events on sunday include: dora the explorer, a sopapillas toss, a quinceañera pagent, pin the tail on the burro, and a sugar skull making workshop. the entire lineup for this event (taking place august 10-12) is not for the faint of heart. so put on your overalls, prepare your best chicken dance and get ready for some good, old fashioned fun. i’m going, hope to see you there!
and don’t forget, the cherry creek arts festival is taking place this weekend – be there or be square!
have a great weekend, denver!
