Memorial Day Events In Northern Colorado

Monday is Memorial Day. Not just a day off of work and to have a barbecue, but instead a day to honor those who’ve given the ultimate sacrifice for your and my freedom. There are a number of events you can attend here in Northern Colorado.

This would also be a great time for you to stop and thank the veterans among us who have given so much for our personal freedoms.
