Memorial Park is once again going to be the site for the Colorado Springs, Springs Spree. Taking place on June 16th and June 17th, the park will transform itself into a gathering place for all to enjoy free music and attractions. With three stages going all day there is a plethora of bands and a variety of music that will please everyone. This years big music guest is Bucky Covington, of American Idol fame.
Jake Loggins, The Black Rose Band, 6035, Talking Trees and the Whiskey Fingers are a few of the great bands that will be rocking the day away while you walk around and enjoy sno-cones, funnel cakes and hot dogs.
On Saturday the 16th starting at 0900 is the SOCO Car Show, displaying customs, classics, antiques and hot rods. These cars will be on display all day for viewing and owners will be available to answer questions should you want to find out what a real car used to look like. They don't make them like a true Cuda anymore.
For those of you who just can't wait until the weekend to ride the ferris wheel, the carnival will be starting on the 14th of June and run through the weekend. Take the kids there and buy an all you can ride wrist band for just $25. Bring in an empty Pepsi product can or bottle to the carnival box office and you get a $5 discount. Now that will make the day well worth it.
Families can enjoy the carnival with over 20 kid friendly rides, and the older kids will have many thrill seeker rides to wait in line for as well. Thursday and Friday night the carnival is open from 5pm to 10pm and Saturday and Sunday it will be open from 10am to 11pm.
The 2009 CFC Champions will be at the Spree this year conducting their 'Skills and Drills' clinic where you can learn how to play like the pros. Sign up for their 'Skills and Drills Challenges' going on on Sunday, or just enjoy watching the cheerleaders. Get your favorite players autograph as well and then help root them on to victory in their homecoming game at the Cheyenne Mountain High School Stadium on Saturday at 7pm.
Kids Zone will be full of great events for the younger kids and the hamster balls will be back as well, which is always fun. Do not miss this years ACW wrestling as well and see who will come out on top this year as the baddest wrestler in the Springs. My bet is it will probably be Brandon.
This years Springs Spree will be a knockout of an event with enough to do for everyone that you couldn't possibly get bored or not find an awesome band to listen to. Bring the entire family and have a great time.
