The event grounds were nice with permanent buildings. The crowd was well mannered and never felt claustrophobic.
As far as entertainment, everything we saw was excellent. The Angels: Heroines in Disguise are one of our new favorite acts. If you get to a faire they’re at, make time to spend with them. Their show has three acts, which get more “adult” (by “adult” I mean “juvenile”) the later in the day they perform.
The traffic was brutal. Parking was a chore too, with our walk back to the car being quite the haul.
We were with a small group, and didn’t get to see some acts we were looking forward to, like The Vodca Family. (Call forward!)
It was well worth the time and money to attend. Colorado is one of our favorite places to begin with, and this show did the state justice. Bookmark their site and make room on your calendar for next year!
