It's only Monday but this weekend is gearing up to be a spectacular mix of community events and great weather!
This Friday is Boulder's First Friday, where businesses celebrate the first Friday of each month. It all kicks off with Noon Tunes featuring Flexigrass with Pete Wernick from Noon to 1:30 p.m. Earthwood Gallery opens its July exhibit of Bob Rickard, fine metal artists, from 6 - 9 p.m. Ten20 will be offering a free polish change complete with M&Ms and Sex in the City all day. prAna will join in with an art show of oil painter Bridgid Lupetin. Boulder Theater continues its Beat the Heat Film Series with a showing of Dark Side of the Rainbow at 8 p.m. for a full list of First Friday events, see our events calendar.
If you're not too tuckered out from Friday's events, Downtown Boulder is celebrating Fourth of July (this Saturday) with quite a bang! Start it off with everyone's favorite Farmers' Market followed by a bluegrass concert in the bandshell. Centro, West End Tavern and The Blending Cellar are all hosting special July 4th events: Centro will have a tasty barbeque, West End Tavern will be offering specialty drinks like a pop rock cockatail and a free shuttle to the fireworks, and The Blending Cellar will celebrate with a red, white and sparkling flight. Boulder will also be celebrating its Sesquicentennial with a Sesquicentennial Stroll through several of our favorite historic landmarks. Check our blog on Thursday for more details on this event. And let's not forget the fireworks at Folsom Stadium (gates open 7 p.m.)!
Sunday is a day of recovery with some great live music held at Boulder Draft House, b.side Lounge, Boulder Theater and The Laughing Goat. See our events calendar for
From all of us at Downtown Boulder, we wish you a happy Fourth of July weekend!
