Annular Solar Eclipse
For the first time since May 2012, an annular solar eclipse, or "ring of fire", will be visible in Colorado in 2023. In this rare event, the moon covers the center of the sun, leaving only a ring of light around its outer edges. This year, the eclipse will occur on the morning of October 14."The eclipse passes over the Four Corners region and many national parks and national monuments will be prime viewing locations," according to GreatAmericanEclipse.com.

Pueblo Parade Of Lights
For over 30 years, Pueblo's Parade of Lights has been a tradition and one of the largest Christmas parades in Colorado. On the Saturday after Thanksgiving, festive, colorful and clever floats, school marching bands, drill teams, decorated saddle club horses and car club vehicles festooned with lights thrill many thousands of spectators as the parade passes from the Mesa Junction down Union Avenue to Main Street then west to disband at 6th and Court.
