Rough Magic Presented by The Colorado Springs School

When: May 13th & 14th, 2022 at 6:00 p.m.

Transplanting characters from The Tempest to present-day New York, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa’s “Rough Magic” is a Shakespearean action-adventure-fantasy in the tradition of Harry Potter and The X-Men.

‘Rough Magic’ conjures a mythical, magical meta-universe in which the evil sorcerer, Prospero, is willing to do anything to recover his stolen book of magic — even if it means Manhattan’s destruction. Lucky for us, New York’s defenders include a quartet of unlikely heroes: Melanie Porter, a plucky, raven-haired dramaturg with the ability to free characters from plays; Caliban, Prospero’s hunky (though not-too-bright) son; Tisiphone, a revenge-seeking Fury from Ancient Greece; and a 17-year-old lifeguard from Coney Island named Chet Baxter. May the forces of evil beware…

The album track “Meet You in The Middle” became a hit on Texas’ regional radio chart — no small feat for an independent, 22-year-old musician — but it was the album’s widely-acclaimed follow-up, Probably Wrong, that helped Parker find national success. Compared to John Mayer and Jason Isbell by Rolling Stone, Parker supported the album with a string of sold-out shows, bringing record-breaking crowds to venues like San Angelo’s RiverStage and two sold-out Billy Bob’s along the way. McCollum released his major label debut album Gold Chain Cowboy July 30th on MCA Nashville. Straddling Texas and Nashville, Parker is “a no-holds-barred, confessional singer-songwriter who excels at relatable tales,” according to Rolling Stone. “McCollum’s ability writing and releasing unique story songs leaves a lasting mark on the listener,” says Billboard while American Songwriter declares, “the Texas native teeters on the edge of next-level superstardom.” Tickets may be purchased at: https://www.axs.com/events/430397/parker-mccollum-tickets?skin=broadmoor

Colorado Springs Western Street Breakfast

When: June 15, 2022
Where: 
Cost: $5

Dating back to 1936 when about 35 people got together and were served from an old chuck wagon in front of Joe Reich’s Swiss Chalet. The breakfasts in the 1930s and early 1940s were for the Cowhands and Cowbelles who were the rodeo boosters now called the Ramrods.

When the Pikes Peak Range Riders made their first ride in 1949 they were looking for a place to start their ride from for the next year and the street breakfast seemed like a likely venue. During those days $1.00 got you a breakfast of eggs and pancakes. And today you get the same breakfast for $5.00, which is a pretty good deal!

Cooking and serving at the street breakfast for over 40 years have been the Fort Carson volunteers. This long standing tradition and Fort Carson’s presence at the breakfast is something that everyone looks forward to seeing. Also present at the breakfast is the Fort Carson Mounted Color Guard, who presents the flags in front of the stage while the crowd removes their cowboy hats and sings the National Anthem.

People from all over the world descend on downtown, drawn by a chance to watch a race inspired by the town’s resident donkey herd, believed to be distant relatives of the original donkeys from the town’s Gold Rush days. Enjoy games, live entertainment, heritage competitions and other fun family activities that will make your visit one to remember!

The beginning of Donkey Derby Days dates back to the 1930s when local businessman Charley Lehew thought a festival would attract people to Cripple Creek. He and some business partners decided that donkey racing would be the main event. They built a donkey race track, found sponsors, food and entertainment vendors and the result was the first Donkey Derby Days festival.
