Pearl Street Mall Crawl 2011

October 30, 2011 in Boulder Events

Every Halloween Pearl Street is crawling with an array of ghastly ghouls and this year was no exception! One of the neatest additions to the yearly Halloween festivities is a Michael Jackson flash mob of sorts, that was started after Michael’s passing a few years ago.

Pro Cycling Challenge give Colorado economy a boost

October 4, 2011 in Boulder Events, Financial News

Provided by Fox 31:
It is expected to generate an estimated $24 million to the local economy.

Compare that to this event…and you could be talking hundreds of millions.

It’s not just a world class sporting event but for Colorado…it’s a world class shot at the international spotlight.

“I was at the last Coors Classic right here in downtown Denver and it’s just phenomenal,” said Molly Cohen, watching from the sidelines near the state capitol.

It has been 23 years since that last pro cycling event and state tourism boosters say this giant week long party will generate as much as $100 million in direct economic impact.

“It’s great to see major road cycling back in Colorado again,” said Mark Cohn, who was at the Red Zinger Classic back in 1978.

“Colorado’s got a good cycling scene I think last couple of years, three or four years,” said Keenen Reed, “Cycling so it’s good to see more of the racing scene.”

Despite the race going on right here behind them some opted to stay in the tent and watch it on TV.

A worldwide TV audience of at least 100 million was expected to watch.

The race exposes Colorado’s beauty to a potentially huge boost in tourism, which is the state’s second largest industry.

” It’s so great for Denver there’s so many out here it’s just absolutely a perfect day,” said Rob Cohen, a huge cycling fan.

Sponsors call it the largest spectator event in Colorado history.

“It inspires Coloradoans to get involved in their own health and be active,” said Beth Soberg, United Health of Colorado’s CEO. And for us that’s our mission so that means a lot to us.”

And since it’s such a perfect fit for Colorado’s reputation as the fittest state in the nation, some say this event could become our own Kentucky Derby.

On this big final day of huge international exposure, they say we may not know the full extent of the economic benefit for weeks to come.

But it’s been a win, win for Colorado.
