And this year could well be the biggest ever. For one thing, its kicking off at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 7, with a parade something thats been absent from the weekend-long festivities for the past few years but is now back, courtesy of increased volunteer efforts and new sponsorship. And then there are the three stages of music, the hundreds of vendors, the childrens carnival and other random attractions. (The Navy is a big sponsor this year, for example, and will be doing everything from parachuting into the park to offering a flight simulator for people to play with.)
Admission to the festival is free, as are many of the activities, and the ones that arent are affordable, Barela notes. For the full lineup, visit www.cincodemayodenver.com.
