May 25, 2016

Are you thinking of moving to the Observatory Park area? Once you become a resident of Observatory Park, you’ll be right near all of the fun and entertainment in the Denver area, including these Memorial Day weekend events:

Cause a stir at ArtStir.
The ArtStir event, taking place during Memorial Day weekend, is a street market that seamlessly blends together Colorado art, music and style. This annual event is clearly an Observatory Park and Denver resident favorite, having been voted as the Best New Festival by Westword magazine in 2014. Visit the Denver Pavilions along the 16th Street Mall in downtown Denver to stroll through beautiful photographs, sculptures, mixed media pieces and furniture designs all produced by Observatory Park and Denver locals!

A big, wonderful idea.
Head to Littleton, just a short drive away from Observatory Park, to attend The Big Wonderful event during Memorial Day weekend. Guests can partake in a little friendly competition by challenging each other to a game of beach volleyball, or cool off in the shade with a craft beer. In fact, craft beer lovers should flock to this event to experience the large outdoor craft beer garden with various unique brews. Food trucks will line the event, giving guests something to chow down on after working up an appetite by dancing to the live music. Because there are so many activities, this event is perfect for people of all ages!

Cool down.
When you think of Memorial Day weekend, you think of fun in the sun, right? Soak up the sun with the whole family at the Water World Grand Opening weekend event. This 67-acre water park will quickly become one of your kids’ favorite attractions in the Observatory Park and Denver area, especially when they see the highly anticipated giant wave pool and white-water rapids! Even little ones can get in on the fun with the Wally World water attraction, designed for tots who want to get in on the fun.

Rock out.
Music lovers, rejoice! During Memorial Day weekend, there is not one, but two incredible music events happening in the Observatory Park area. First, start your afternoon off at the 16th Street Mall for the Denver Day of Rock event. Not only is this event free for guests, but it also has a great cause, to raise awareness of the children in the Observatory Park and Denver community.  Learn more about the Denver Day of Rock here.  Later on that evening, stop by the Let’s Dance: Celebration of David Bowie event at the Boettcher Concert Hall to honor the life of this musical legend. Reminisce about old times while listening to beautiful renditions of some of Bowie’s greatest hits. With these two musical events, this Memorial Day weekend will be one that you’ll never forget!
