When: Oct. 10-12 2014
When Colorado Balloon Classic organizers announced that 2014 would be their last year in Colorado Springs, many locals learned a big lesson about taking things for granted. After all, there are only so many events that have been part of the local fabric for more than 30 years, and you never know when they won't be around anymore. So while we have no reason to believe that the Celebration Fair's 36-year run in the Springs is in danger, you may want to visit the City Auditorium (221 E. Kiowa St., bmscelebration.com) this weekend anyway. Find astrologers, tarot readers, crystal-sellers and lots more; the fair runs from 1 to 9 today, 10 to 7 tomorrow and 10 to 6 on Sunday, and entry is just $5. — Kirk Woundy
Price: $5 per day or $13 for the weekend.
