Western fun for young adults on agenda
Too young for this? Too old for that?
Not a problem.
Young adults will find plenty of things to do and see at Western Welcome Week starting with a spectacular fireworks display Aug. 9 in Sterne Park at approximately 9 p.m.
Catch a glimpse of some of the best cyclists in the area during the Littleton Criterium Race on Aug. 11. This 0.8-mile circuit starts on Main Street between Nevada and Prince and weaves though downtown Littleton. It’s a fast, smooth figure-8 course that’s just as exciting for spectators as it is for racers. Races run from 8 a.m. through 6:05 p.m., with a kids’ fun race at 11:50 a.m.
Skate City will keep things rolling that evening with a Western Welcome Week-themed family skate night from 6 to 8 p.m. Come for prizes and a free slice of pizza. Admission is $4.50 per person. Both regular and inline skates may be rented on site. Skate City is located at 5801 S. Lowell Way.
If dunking a Littleton cop in a tank of water sounds like fun, then head to the Bradford Auto Body Parking lot after the Grand Parade on Aug. 17 for the ever-popular dunk-a-cop tank. Proceeds benefit the Littleton Police Citizens’ Academy Alumni Association. Bradford Auto Body is located at 2659 W. Main St. in Littleton.
