COLORADO — Every weekend we try to compile a list of fun-filled events across Colorado. This week, whether you are looking to participate in a guided bird walk and catch some fresh air, snack on what Colorado's best offers in Denver, or looking to catch a spring ball game there is plenty happening for Mother's Day weekend!
Oscar Blues Comedy Night
Orchestrated by the Bohemian Boys Comedy each Sunday, a FREE comedy show is held at Oscar Blues Grill & Brew in Downtown Colorado Springs. The show begins at 6:30 p.m. and features local and professional comedians. An open mic opens up at 7:30 p.m. Anyone can sign up for a chance to pitch 5 minutes of your best acts.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife will be hosting multiple free events at John Mueller State Park this month. If you're looking to get outside this weekend, on Saturday, CPW will be hosting two free events at the park. Beginning at 8:30 a.m. volunteer naturalist Michael will be hosting a 1.5-mile, slow-paced nature hike to view and hear migrating birds that are returning and joining some that spent the winter at Mueller.
From 1-4 p.m. meet at Outlook Ridge Trailhead this Mother's Day weekend, and celebrate Mother Earth with a peaceful Forest Bathing/Shinrin-Yoku 1-mile walk.
