U.S. Olympic Committee Community Celebration Day

When: Sat., June 25, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. 2011

Thousands of tourists come to Colorado Springs every year for all kinds of reasons, but for many, the must-see agenda includes the Olympic Training Center. Yet, a huge number of locals never have ventured inside the complex at 1750 E. Boulder St., even though admission is free. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. today, you have an extra lure, as the U.S. Olympic Committee puts on its Community Appreciation Day. Along with live music and prize giveaways, you can see the visitors center with its historical offerings, tour the various OTC facilities, watch and meet Olympic-hopeful athletes as they demonstrate many sports, and check out booths hosted by sponsors and Olympic sports. Then you can make it a full day of sports by going to the finals of the USA Boxing National Championships, starting at 6 p.m. in the City Auditorium (221 E. Kiowa St., thesportscorp.org) for just $20 a person at the door. — Ralph Routon
