The past couple of days have been gorgeous with lots of sunshine and warm temperatures. Despite the fact that another bomb cyclone is due to hit this afternoon, we are ready for spring and all of it’s loveliness. Easter is right around the corner, so we rounded up a list of the best events in the Colorado Springs area. The good news: there so many great events to choose from. The bad news: nearly all of them occur on the same weekend, so you’ll have to choose your favorites! Let us know which ones you end up attending.
We love a good list of activities, so be sure to check out our other offerings. You can bookmark them or pin them for later: Things to Do in Colorado Springs, Things to Do This Spring, Fall Activities Near Colorado Springs, Valentine’s Day Activities, and Top 10 Colorado Springs Christmas Activities.
