Territory Days and Memorial Day

by

Every memorial weekend Colorado Springs host “Territory Days”  It’s a pretty small event held in Old Colorado City just of highway 24 on the west side of Colorado Springs.  The main street is shut down for a couple of blocks.  There are gunfights, Bands and food.  It’s billed as having local arts and crafts but most of it is food and tends to be priced high for the three day event.  It does attract a crowd though and since there really aren’t that many events in Colorado Springs it seems to do pretty well. 

This year the weather was a challenge.  It rained everyday.  Today when we went the clouds were gearing up as we left the house.  Naturally we brought some jackets and umbrellas. It was pretty warm when we arrived. 

Brule_2008 I’m not a big fan of Territory Days mainly because it’s too crowded and the prices high but every year I’ve gone AIRO – Brule has been there.  This is a Native American band the mixes some interesting sounds.  I’ve liked them since the first Territory Days I attended. 

We watched a bit of the show then the rain started coming down and it was time to head back home. 

All in all it was nice.
