Colorful Colorado: Vivid colors, crazy costumes on display at inaugural Unicorn Festival

A love of all things whimsical led Dana Cain and Michelle Baldwin to create the Unicorn Festival, a first-time event held Sunday in Clement Park.

For Cain, the mythical animal is not a craze, despite the trendiness of unicorns at the moment.

“Unicorns symbolize the magical power of the universe,” Cain said. “They symbolize myth and fantasy and imagination and that all things are possible.

“They bring purity and goodness and joy and strength. They’re just wonderful, wonderful creatures,” she added.
