From "What If" to why not try

Did you ever wonder what it would be like to stand inside a giant bubble or have you ever wanted to write your own song?

If so, this Saturday, September 10, you will have the chance to experience in the fun of doing all those things and a whole lot more at the second annual "What If" Festival of Imagination and Innovation, which will be taking place in downtown Colorado Springs.

The festival is a celebration of creativity, innovation, and exploration. It's presented by Imagination Celebration and Pikes Peak Library District and organizers want for all who come to have the opportunity to participate in hands-on demos, as well as to stimulate the creative and curious side of those in the community.

It pulls together people from all different disciplines: dance, music, science, technology, sports, and the culinary arts.

Last year, organizers estimate the event drew around 15,000 to the six-block event venue. This year, there will be over 100 presenters and takes place in and around the Pikes Peak Center, the Pioneers Museum, Plaza of the Rockies, Colorado Springs Utilities, and the Sun Building.

It's free to attend and to participate.

Cascade will be closed off between Colorado and Vermijo Avenues.

The festival runs from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
