2012 FESTIVAL 38
We were blessed with the most fabulous weather for our 2nd Annual Festival 38 held on Saturday, August 4th, 2012! Attendance was estimated to be over 4,000 people! Our carnival rides were a big hit with the kiddies, our craft booths and vendor booths made visitors aware of cool new artisans and service providers, and our music lineup rocked the night away! Our mini-farmers market was provided courtesy of Chlorophyll, Inc., which promotes hydroponic gardening and supporting local growth of healthy fruits and vegetables. The Navajo Street Arts District provided painting opportunities for children, and local artists displayed and sold their beautiful artworks. Zumba Colorado got the crowd jumping and dancing to latin beats! Our musical groups included Mood Express, Doc Brown's Blues Band, Hot Lunch, Tony Exum Jr., and the Moses Jones Band, who closed out the festivities with a bang! Make sure your calendar is marked for the 2013 Festival 38, coming up soon!
