Canon City hosts 80th Music and Blossom Festival

Posted: Updated:
CANON CITY -

Canon City hosted its 80th Music and Blossom Festival Saturday.

The festival hosted large crowds looking for some fun in the sun, and they weren't disappointed, as temperatures nearly reached the 80's.

The festival parade featured high school marching bands, floats decked out in 80's gear, and even some folks from the News 5 crew.

The parade theme was 'Dude it's the 80's' and it brought out people of all ages dressed in 80's garb. School pride was also on display, as the rhythmic boom of marching band drums harmonizing with the sounds of trumpets reverberated down the street.

Blossoms in the Park included more than 100 vendors from across Colorado, as well as neighboring states. A carnival, food, vendors, and live music were also part of the festivities. 

Each year, Canon City hosts the event on the first weekend in May.
