Congratulations Class of 2020
Looking forward to brighter days to come!
This year has brought lots of changes for all of us, but our graduating seniors have really gotten the short end of the stick. However, we’re Coloradans and we don’t let anything, including stupid viruses, get us down for long. The City of Colorado Springs has put together a campaign to light the City in honor of our graduates. We love our city and the people in it, so several of our folks are participating. Check out some of the cool lights you can enjoy this evening.
If you get out to see them, be sure to share your photos with us on your favorite social media platform. #BeTheLightCOS and #VisitPikesPeak
When: May 20, 2020 at 8:20pm (2020 military time. See what they did there?)
Where: All over town! Check out the Google Map here.
Who: North Pole, Miramont Castle, ProRodeo Hall of Fame and Western Museum of Mining and Industry plus lots and lots of other awesome organizations all over town! See the map above for the complete list.
North Pole – Santa’s Workshop
The first one of our members to raise their hands and say count me in, was the North Pole – Santa’s Workshop. This was an easy call for them because they have been lighting the ferris wheel every night for many weeks in solidarity with Colorado’s Howl at 8. As founding members of our association and one of our legacy attractions (an attraction over 50 years old with multiple generations of ownership) the folks at North Pole are consummate experts at bringing joy to the residents of Colorado. They’ve been doing it for over 60 years and three generations. Putting a smile on kids faces is literally in their blood and they do it extremely well.
Thank you North Pole for sharing your light! #BeTheLightCOS
Miramont Castle Museum
Manitou Springs, Colorado
ProRodeo Hall of Fame
Colorado Springs, Colorado
The Spirit of the West is alive and well at ProRodeo Hall of Fame, and one of the things we’re known for is our hospitality. They are looking forward to welcoming our graduating seniors in a drive-by celebration of their big rite of passage. They are lighting their iconic statue of The Champ, as well as new colored lights on the front of the building. ProRodeo would like to wish all you graduating seniors very happy trails. You are our future, and you are what’s bright about us all!
Thank you for sharing your light ProRodeo Hall of Fame! #BeTheLightCOS
