Its a free event in a down economy, and our food vendors are typically compared to those at other festivals less expensive, with most dishes under $10, notes spokeswoman Valerie Hamlin. Its a nice way to take the family and have a day out without breaking the bank.
One caveat: For budgetary reasons, the fest has dropped shuttle service to and from Invesco Field, so you might want to green up and investigate alternative methods of transportation: RTD, bikes, foot power and carpools. And in addition to hosting monitored bike and scooter parking on site, the fest is partnering with various area venues to provide first-come, first-served alternative parking nearby for those willing to take a short hike.
Attend the fest on the east end of Sloan's Lake Park, 23rd Avenue and Stuart Street, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. today and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. tomorrow; get more information at www.cdbf.org.
