Yesterday's Community Harvest Festival certainly fit the bill and attendance was almost 3x expected. Kids everywhere, fantastic music, and tasty food. What more could you ask for?
Here's another Boulder event worth attending.
MEET THE SPIRITS
Starting at NOON this SUNDAY, October 12th, stroll up 9th street to Columbia Cemetery.
Boulder’s Parks and Rec and Historic Boulder will be bringing more than 30 of Boulder’s dearly departed back to life. Notable spirits include including Eben G. Fine, Mary Rippon, and James P. Maxwell.
This year, “Meet the Spirits” will host a new “Cemetery Symbolism Scavenger Hunt” for children including prizes, and celebrate its tradition with Victorian mourners, funeral music, vintage hearses, as well as a re-enactment of a solemn Masonic burial service.
This isn't a scary haunted maze. It's a family friendly event.
“This is a marvelous opportunity for people of all ages to learn about our local history in a fun, interactive way,” said Mary Reilly-McNellan, event organizer and the department’s program specialist. “It gives the public an opportunity to see that Columbia Cemetery is not scary, but that it is a special place that reveals rich stories of the past, roots us in the present, and inspires us to protect its future.”
“Meet the Spirits” is scheduled from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 12, at Columbia Cemetery, located at Ninth and Pleasant streets. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for Historic Boulder members and $5 for children/students under 16. Tickets are available in advance at Historic Boulder at 1123 Spruce St. in Boulder, or at Columbia Cemetery at Ninth and Pleasant streets the day of the event. Proceeds will benefit Columbia Cemetery and Historic Boulder. In case of inclement weather, the event will be rescheduled to Sunday, Oct. 19. For more event information, call 303-444-5192.
