And as always, the festival will overflow with music, with performers this year including Leahy, McPeak, Eileen Ivers & Immigrant Soul, the Screaming McSweenys, the Elders, Wake the Dead and David Kincaid. From a standpoint of entertainment, its got everything from rock to traditional music and dance to sports, McCullough notes. I also think its priced right.
Particularly if you come July 10 between 5 and 6 p.m., when admission is free as the festival kicks off. It runs through July 12 at Clement Park, 7306 West Bowles Avenue in Littleton. Regular admission is $8 tonight, $10 tomorrow; kids twelve and under get in free, and you can get in free again on Sunday before 11 a.m. with the donation of two non-perishable food items for Food Bank of the Rockies.
