The weekend provided plenty of lens-fillers for Westword photogs. Aaron Thackeray captured the 50 best costumes at the Renaissance Festival -- including the one seen here -- while Eric Gruneisen captured the top T-shirts at Heaven Fest. And multiple shutterbugs contributed to our July photo roundup. See these eye-popping images and more at Westword's slideshow page.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
