Colorado Springs PrideFest this weekend

COLORADO SPRINGS — A temporary rainbow crosswalk will be installed in Downtown Colorado Springs as a test of a creative crosswalk application.

The crosswalk, which will be installed at 6 a.m. on July 12 at the south side of the intersection of Tejon St. and Colorado Ave. will feature a rainbow design that meets federal transportation safety standards and compliance. The design preserves the crosswalk’s white bars while adding the six colors of the rainbow.

The crosswalk received support from Downtown business and PrideFest sponsor EAS Creative Consortium. Additional funds were contributed by PrideFest and Downtown Ventures, the charitable nonprofit arm of Downtown Partnership. No taxpayer dollars were used.

The Colorado Springs PrideFest is July 13-14. For more information, CLICK HERE.
