And if that isn't enough dancing, drumming and storytelling for one day, then celebrate with the Kwanzaa Committee of Denver and their 40th Anniversary of Kwanzaa. Starting tonight at 7 p.m., march along with the Drumming and Pamoja Parade to the Grand Kinara Lighting at the corner of 26th and Welton Streets. One of seven candles corresponding to the seven principles of the holiday on the twelve-foot Kinara will be lit. Afterward, enjoy six days and nights of Kwanzaa, starting with A Handmade Life III, an art exhibit at the Blair-Caldwell African-American Research Library. In addition, the Pauline Robinson Branch, the Ford-Warren Branch and the Montbello Branch of the Denver Public Library will all offer Kwanzaa activities, including crafts, food and live performers. For more information on time and prices, march to www.denverzoo.org, call the Kwanzaa Committee at 303-371-4793 or check out www.denverlibrary.org.
