Welcome back, University of Northern Colorado students. Here’s more than 40 bands as a present.
The annual Greeley Block Party, hosted by Ely Corliss, owner of the Moxi Theater, should show UNC students that downtown is a fun place to visit.
Some of those bands will appear in Greeley’s downtown establishments, as well as the 9th Street Plaza. It starts at 5 tonight and all of it is free. What better way for downtown to show off his feathers?
Greeley residents will try to set a new Guinness World Record for the longest continuous chalk art drawing on Saturday, and we hope they succeed.
But even if they don’t, that’s all right. It should be a fun event for everyone involved.
The goal of the city’s first Chalk A Lot event is a drawing 3.7 miles long. The University of Northern Colorado is providing a spot on campus, and organizers are hopeful many students will participate.
The Chalk A Lot is a great way to draw public attention to Greeley’s Creative District.
“It was cheap, free and something fun and a little out of the ordinary,” Greeley Assistant City Manager Becky Safarik said of sponsoring the event, which cost the city about $8,000.
Greeley may make the Chalk A Lot an annual event if it turns out to be popular. We hope so, because it sounds like it will be a blast.
