Denver Post: “Looking for things” to do or “places to go” during the Denver Stock show / National Western Stock Show? Come on out between when the Rodeos not going on or the stock isn’t showing and visit the Christmas lights you didn’t see when you were back home. While visiting Colorado come see a quarter million lights.
“Anything and everything we can to do advance family bonding, communication, playing together, eating together and staying together is what we do,” said Ian Steyn, owner of Jellystone Park.
That’s why town manager Matt Krimmer said the Illumination Light Show goes well with Larkspur’s tree-lighting event Saturday at the town park.
“It does bring people into the town because they’re curious about the small-town area,” Krimmer said. “We have a good working relationship with the business owner, and through the chamber of commerce we are promoting the other things we have going on. It’s good for the businesses as they do get people coming in who attend the events and who are looking for a place to eat.”
The town’s tree-lighting event has been held for almost 25 years. combined with the Illumination Light Show, officials hope a lot of people come down to visit the town, which is known for hosting the very popular Renaissance Festival.
Pam Palm, owner of Larkspur Pizzaria, said anything that boosts tourism in the town of 200 is welcome.
“It’s beautiful,” Palm said about the light show. “It’s great for the community, and it’s a beautiful addition.”
Steyn said other parks that have hosted similar light shows attracted 15,000 to 100,000 people over the season. John Chapman, general manager at Jellystone Park and coordinator for the light show, said those numbers are attainable because of the park’s proximity between Denver and Colorado Springs.
“Of course we’re hoping to create something that becomes a tradition with the Front Range,” Chapman said. “We hope people have a great time riding through with their friends and family and just want to make it one of those things they do in the holiday season every year.”
“With the initial excitement that we see being generated, we’re already making plans for 2015 and making the show bigger and better,” Chapman said. “I think it’s going to be a great show this year. It will be exciting to see if we do scale it up and what that will look like.”</>
