Fort Collins Music Fans Won't Throw Their Trash on the Ground Even if You Ask Nicely

There was in interesting policy on trash over the weekend at Fort Collins' biggest music festival. More on that later.

Bohemian Nights is a three-day Fort Collins music festival featuring around a hundred local performances and several national headliners, all free to the public, funded by the Bohemian Foundation. It runs in conjunction with New West Fest, a city-run street fair featuring hundreds of vendors, carnival rides, and food and drink stands. This year's Bohemian Nights headliners were Big Head Todd and the Monsters, Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo and WAR. This year it celebrated it's tenth anniversary, and I went, just as I have for every year for as long as I can remember.
