Downtown Fort Collins Events We Can’t Wait For
I'll never forget the first time I tried the Saint Patty's Day Parade in Fort Collins. It was rainy and cold, and we thought it would be a great idea to bring our three girls, the oldest of whom were three, and our new, out-of-control husky/shepherd/or whatever dog. Tears and stress are a part of young parenthood. Anyway...
Ever since Collective Soul played Taste of Fort Collins a few years ago, I have been amazed by this huge event that the city puts on and lets you in for free if you simply have a debit card from 1st National Bank! American Authors put on a stellar performance that year, too. Then, there was last year when Smashmouth freaked out because fans were throwing bread. I wasn't at that one, but the night before, Atlas Genius thought the bread thing was hilarious and played along.
I did Tour de Fat once, and I might again when my little girls are older. Lots of fun. Lots of drunk people on bikes.
New West Fest is something I usually sort of pass through, because I never show up early enough to get where you can even see the big headliner playing. That said, I honestly have an amazing time there, and that is thanks partly to the mobile version of the Rio being on site. Also, I get ga-ga over the carnival, which is a whole separate blog.
Thanks to the website "Visit Fort Collins" for this:
