COLORADO SPRINGS — The annual Western Street Breakfast is set to take over Downtown Colorado Springs Thursday morning. Streets will be closed off and filled with hay bales, and Fort Carson soldiers will be cooking up a hot breakfast.

Below are the street closures you need to know about. The roads will be closed from 5 a.m. until noon:

  • Pikes Peak Avenue between North Cascade Avenue and North Corona Street
  • North Tejon Street between East Kiowa Street and Colorado Avenue

Last year, military members fed 10,000 people during the breakfast.

The street breakfast raises money each year to support local military and their families. It also pays homage to what our area was founded on.
