COLORADO SPRINGS — This year marks Colorado Springs' 150th anniversary.
To celebrate the Sesquicentennial, the city will be hosting a number of activities, Mayor John Suthers announced Thursday.
The events will include "COS Tree Month" in April, "Beards Bonnets, and Brews Fest" in June, and the biggest celebration, a downtown festival schedule for the end of July.
"It's gonna be our opportunity to get out and socialize like we haven't been able to do in a long time. If things continue on the course they're on right now we'll be pretty close to normal for the summer," Suthers said.
