10 Things To Do for $10 in Denver This Weekend (6 Free!), August 29-31

What? It's Labor Day weekend already! How did that happen? Hopefully, you got you summer's worth of events, culture, music, food and fun over the past twelve weeks or so, though. But just because the season is changing doesn't mean there's not more in store. This weekend, get your DILIGAF on at the biker rally, laugh until it hurts, or see a classic movie at the library. Tell everyone about other events in the comments section and visit the Westword calendar to see a complete list of happenings around town.

A Taste of Colorado at Civic Center Park (Friday-Monday, free) A Taste of Colorado is a Labor Day tradition for food, activities and music in Denver, and this year's lineup includes The Wallflowers, En Vouge and The Commodores. You can't say no to The Commodores.

Thunder In The Rockies Bike Rally at Thunder Mountain Amphitheatre (Friday-Monday, free-$5) The helicopter rides and Bret Michaels concert will cost more than $10, but just about every other activity at the rally is pretty cheap, if not free. There will also be tons of biker vendors to keep you outfitted, live music and stunt demo's. Check out the calendar to map out your weekend.

Final Friday Music Walk and Urban Bazaar at RiNo District (Friday, $5) The final Final Friday of the summer is upon us. If you haven't been to this event, it's an insane mixture of music, art, food, booze and community. For only a $5 donation (or more), guests get access to the event, as well as free and discounted beer. Need we say more?

The Wizard of Oz at Denver Central Library (Friday, free) Join the library in its first outdoor movie event. In celebration of The Wizard of Oz's 75th anniversary, the DPL will project it onto a twenty-foot screen on the side of the building. Sounds like a magical Friday night.
