City of Sunshine Family Fun Day & Exhibit Opening

When: Sat., Jan. 16, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. 2016

Many seem to agree that 300 days of sunshine a year is a pretty good reason to visit or move to Colorado. Back in the 1870s, the prolific sunshine was marketed as a tuberculosis cure — a promise that brought a good number of people to the area. The Pioneers Museum's City of Sunshine exhibit tells the story of how individuals, institutions and treatments during this mass migration helped shape our city. Though this interactive exhibit is ongoing, you'll want to stop by today for the opening celebration and family fun day. Health-oriented businesses and the downtown YMCA will have booths to browse, and you can also catch a tai chi class or nosh on healthy food samples. 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum, 215 S. Tejon St. 385-5990, cspm.org. — Alissa Smith
