St Patrick’s Day Parade

Get with the green!!!

Tomorrow is the big day – the St Patrick’s Day Parade!

We were caught unaware last year that there was a parade, the magnitude of said parade, and the exuberance denverites held for the parade!

It starts at 10am at the Coors Field Parking Lot – at 27th and Blake, they head south till 17th, then turn right, back up Wynkoop, and then through the back of union station to the parking lot again.
This parade has everything – the typical irish stuff – irish setter groups, clog dancers, leprechauns, as well as Latin Dancers, Cab companies, the PT Cruiser group, long horn steers, and more!

It is the craziest conglomeration of disparate topics in one parade I have ever seen.

Get your green on and come out and celebrate!

If parades aren’t your thing, but you think you might need to burn off a couple calories, the running of the green is Sunday March 15th.
Have you seen the green stripe down Blake St?  You can’t get lost and it’s only 7k which is actually 2.2 miles!

The National Western Stock Show

I’m not originally from here. I’m not originally from anywhere where stock animals “come to town” and have a show!
Except maybe the circus… But anyway…

The National Western Stock Show is in town!
The stock!
What does that mean?
It means from now – Jan 10th till Jan 25th Denver and Denver Coliseum will be filled with lots of animals!
And per their website:
“The National Western Stock Show’s mission is to preserve the western lifestyle through an emphasis on education, and we take this mission seriously.”

There are a ton of things going on! The schedule is jammed packed. There is a rodeo. There is a horse show. There is just a lot of stuff going on.

But most important to me – is the parade!
Yes indeedie, there is a parade scheduled for Jan 13th crusing thru down town! Long horn cattle will be taking a jaunt come high noon on the 13th!
Long Horn on Parade
I’ve seen some of these fellas during the St. Particks Day Parade and they are not small. They are BIG. And their horns… Oooofa!

But hey, it you are down town around noon on the 13th… Stop by 17th street and take a gander!
I’m sure it will be a hoot! See you there!

Parade of Lights

Friday and Saturday will be the Channel 9 annual parade of lights!

The route is here – it basically rolls around the blocks surrounding the 16th street mall!
I haven’t been myself, but i will be there this year! Our friends say it’s a pretty cool thing to watch, and if you can find a location inside, do that!

It seems like a fabulous way to start off the holiday season if you haven’t already!
