Denver Poets Day runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. today in Skyline Park, 16th and Arapahoe streets, where McAllister is also banking on luring potential poetry lovers from the crowds viewing the final stage of the USA Pro Challenge as cyclists zip through LoDo on their way to the finish. “Traditionally, this is the weekend when Poets Day is held,” he notes. “We decided to go ahead and do it on this day in the hope that thousands of people who normally would not get exposed to poetry will hear some at this event.”
