  • Hundreds gather in Denver in support of Trump

    DENVER — For many, Fourth of July is a day for spending time with family, honoring those who fought for the United States’ independence and celebrating being an American.

  • Date set for next year’s REVEL Rockies races

    A date has been set for next year’s REVEL Rockies.

    The half- and full-marathon races, which end in downtown Morrison, will be June 3 — a week earlier than in 2017. This is due, in part, because the IRONMAN event will be held in Boulder on June 10, and Colorado State Patrol will have a lot of its officers in Boulder for the triathlon.

  • A splish-splashin’ good time

    The Fourth of July signifies freedom and patriotic pride, but for the town of Indian Hills, it’s also about water — and lots of it.

    Halfway through the town’s annual Independence Day parade, American flags are traded in for water guns and hoses, and a huge community-wide water fight breaks out.

    The firefighters spray residents with their hoses, and residents fight back with squirt guns. It’s fun for all, and the event attracts people from across the mountain area.

    Jenn Dougherty traveled from Conifer for the parade.

  • Red, White & You

    Under the glow of the setting sun, a sparkly blue cap with white stars stood out amongst the packed crowd for Monday’s Red, White & You celebration at Clement Park.

    The hat sat atop Glenda Florea’s head. The Littleton resident said she had never been to Red, White & You, the annual Fourth of July festival put on by Foothills Park and Recreation District, because her dogs were scared of fireworks. But when they passed away, she decided it was time to make an appearance.

  • Morrison looking to create overlay district

    In the midst of a continued period of growth, Morrison town officials are working on a plan to preserve the character of their town.
