Woodland Park is kicking off its 125th anniversary celebration this weekend. The birthday celebration is expected to feature a chili luncheon as well as a presentation by historian Larry Black on the city’s past. There will be vintage photos of Woodland Park on display and attendees are invited to dress in period costumes.
Jan Wilson, Chair of the 125th Anniversary Steering Committee, says more events like this are currently in the works to take place throughout the year.
“We’ve got a lot of people that are excited about this, and just brainstorming, ‘What can we do for this?’ ‘What can we do for that?’ So it’s still in the planning stages, we haven’t put the whole year together.”
Other planned celebration events include the unearthing of a 50 year old time capsule.
This weekend’s kick-off event is set to take place on Sunday at 1:00 PM at the Ute Pass Cultural Center. To RSVP, call the city at 719-687-5231.
