Clowns on Parade

If there's any area in Denver where a posse of clowns roaming the streets could seem remotely commonplace, it would have to be East Colfax Avenue. That's a big part of the reason RAFT Colorado (Resource Area for Teaching) boardmembers decided to hold their annual Clown Crawl fundraiser on the strip.

"Last year, a few people ended up giving us donations on the streets. And of course, on Colfax we got the crackheads, but they got into it," recalls RAFT Colorado member Elizabeth Norris.

So put on your happy face and red nose (if you don't have one, someone usually brings extras, says Norris) and meet at the Goosetown Tavern, 3242 East Colfax Avenue, at 8 p.m. for the bar crawl. Next up will be Atomic Cowboy and then Rock Bar. Call 303-263-0082 or go to for more information.
Sat., Nov. 18, 8 p.m.
