Sochi Olympic Downtown Celebration

When: Fri., Feb. 7, 5-10 p.m. 2014

The city of Colorado Springs will celebrate the opening of the Olympic Winter Games in the only way that makes sense: with an outdoor party on Tejon Street at 5 p.m., when the temperature is likely to be well below freezing. Nonetheless, the third Olympic Downtown Celebration (coloradospringssports.org) will offer snowmobile jumpers, live music, a ceremonial lighting and a view of the opening of the Sochi games to intrepid sports fans. KOAA will even live-broadcast the evening news there. And if that doesn't heat your corn bag, then dig dog-sled demonstrations, the Short & Sweet Downtown Dash and, thankfully, warming stations. — Bryce Crawford
