Events going on around Denver to keep you busy this Memorial Day weekend

Hard to believe that May is almost over, it seems like we just started the month! But time never slows down for anyone and here we are approaching the end of May and with that, Memorial Day weekend. I would like to take a minute to thank all of the families, friends and relatives of those fallen men and women soldiers. This is a weekend where we remember those who fought so valiantly for our country so that we might all continue to live in the land of the free and the home of the brave.


For those of you planning to head out of town this weekend, please be safe and check weather conditions wherever you are heading. Many people like to start their summer camping off this weekend and head up to the mountains but it has been a rather cold time up there still so make sure to pack accordingly. Also know the airports will be quite busy all weekend so make sure to give yourself extra time to check-in and to get through security.


Now if you are staying in Colorado for the weekend, more specifically Denver, there are so many activities to choose from this weekend it will be hard to narrow it down to just one or two a day. Below I have compiled a list of fun things to do with your family or events to hit up with your friends while enjoying the hopefully good weather this weekend:
