Western-Themed Events and Attractions Come Together to Celebrate History and Heritage in the Pikes Peak region.
Grab a bandana and celebrate the western heritage of the Pikes Peak region with rodeos, train rides, gold mine tours, historical reenactments, parades, a Race to the Clouds, a county fair and even a donkey derby. Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak region have rustled up an entire summer’s worth of family fun and branded it Pikes Peak Western Heritage Days. This summer, May through August, residents and visitors can saddle up and celebrate the cowboy, gold mining, geological and American Indian heritage of this unique western region.
Families, couples and those whose hearts belong to history and heritage travel can experience the rich western atmosphere of Colorado Springs and the surrounding Pikes Peak region through a long list of unique events and fun attractions.
To kick-off this momentous event, Colorado Springs has designated May 10-14, 2010 as Ride Your Horse to Work Week in addition to National Tourism Week. Stay tuned to see which elected official plans to gallop up the steps of City Hall! A full calendar of events and every western-themed attraction in the area can be found at www.VisitCOS.com/western. Also on this site, travelers can find Savings with an Altitude – great deals on area lodging, dining, activities and attractions.
There’s no better time and place than the summer of 2010 in the Pikes Peak region to “Tie One On” (a bandana, that is), and that’s no bull.
