Ever hear yourself say, "What if...?" Well, today, one group encourages your "what if" to become reality.
Imagination Celebration and the Pikes Peak Library District present the second annual "What If" Festival of Innovation and Imagination, which is a free fair for people of all ages to experience.
It's main goal - to stimulate creativity and community collaboration.
From athletes to garage inventors to big box store gadgets and gizmos, as well as from elementary school kids to scientists, this event will have people of all skill levels showcasing their level of genius, and they want attendees to participate.
The event is a hands-on event encouraging all to participate. It's really like a living museum and you can touch and try everything!
Come join News 5 in a day filled with fun activities for right- and left-brainers alike. There will be over 100 presenters, all excited to share their skills with curious souls.
The event runs from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. and will take place inside and outside of the Pikes Peak Center, Sun Building's grounds and parking lot, Pioneer Museum, Plaza of the Rockies, and Colorado Springs Utilities. Cascade between Vermijo and Colorado Avenues will be closed off to traffic, and exhibitors will be set-up east to west from Nevada to Sahwatch.
