The start of a new year is right around the corner. We will close the door on 2016 and open a new one on New Year’s Eve to welcome 2017. Winter is also in full swing here in the Pike’s Peak region. Colorado living doesn’t slow down with the cold weather or snow. There are still plenty of fun events and exciting things to experience with friends and family throughout January. It’s easy to chase away the winter blues here with so much to do. Check out some ideas below, and have a Happy New Year!
Many of us start the year with new resolutions. If yours is for healthier living, you won’t want to miss the annual Colorado Springs Health Expo, coming Saturday, January 7th. This free expo will be held at the City Auditorium, and will offer not only classes and seminars, but also the chance to visit a variety of exhibitors ready to show off their latest products and services to help you live healthy and feel great.
One of downtown Colorado Springs most popular winter traditions will soon wind down. Skate at the Park is still going on, but only until Monday, January 16th. As the only outdoor skating rink in town, this is an ideal way to enjoy some winter recreation and fun for all ages. The last few skating dates include some special extras, too, such as skating with Team USA members of our Olympic Skating team on January 7th, and Skating with the Air Force hockey team, The Falcons, on January 15th.
If you have ever wanted to experience the spell-bounding, awe-inspiring acrobatic feats of Cirque de Soleil, your chance is here. For five days only, Wednesday, January 18th through Sunday, January 22nd, this world-renowned performance circus will present Ovo at The Broadmoor World Arena. The space will come alive with the busy and colorful life of insects, including a sweet love story, too.
For one last ‘holiday bash’, head over to Manitou Springs on Saturday, January 28th, with your leftover fruit cake, and toss it. The ever-popular Manitou Springs Great Fruit Cake Toss will take place at Memorial Park; it’s family-friendly and free to attend. You can even ‘rent’ a piece of cake if you didn’t get any this year. Find out which local baker will be crowned the Queen or King of Fruitcakes. 2017 marks the 20th year of this fun community event, which also includes a nonperishable food drive for St. Andrews Food Bank.
