The new twist, separated into a pair of parties, commences tonight with a time-traveling Night in Historic Denver gala that will progressively explore, in the course of an evening, the food, music and even the cocktails of the past four decades. Attend the gala from 6 to 11 p.m. at St. Cajetans Center, 1190 Ninth Street; tickets are $40 to $50. The fun continues under the sun tomorrow from 2 to 9 p.m. with a family-friendly festival, Day in Historic Denver. We worked hard to bring back some of the folks who performed at the original event, Quiroga says.
Also on tap are tours of the nineteenth-century homes in Ninth Street Park, roving costumed characters, a vintage baseball game, strolling mariachis, activities for kids, ethnic dancers, oral history and more. Admission to the fest is free, as are most activities; visit www.historicdenver.org or call 303-534-5288, ext. 6, for details and reservations for the gala.
Fri., Aug. 6, 6-11 p.m.; Sat., Aug. 7, 2-9 p.m., 2010
