Rocky Mountain State Games

When: Fridays-Sundays. Continues through July 31 2016

Whatever reason you may have to not attend this summer's Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, don't feel left out of the Olympic spirit. Starting earlier this month — and mostly happening this week and next — Colorado Springs Sports Corporation is hosting the 15th annual Rocky Mountain State Games, the state's "largest sports festival." From the more mainstream sports like tennis, basketball, volleyball and soccer to climbing, cycling and standup paddleboarding — throw in billiards and arm wrestling for good measure too — at least one of the 39 sports represented will suit your fancy. And though a trip to the Rio games would be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, Colorado has cleaner water and fewer mosquitoes. July 22-24 and July 29-31, see RMSG facebook events page for specific dates, times, locations and ticket information, rockymountainstategames.org. — Craig Lemley
