Green Apple Festival – Earth Day – City Park Denver

Denver’s City Park finally got its music festival, and a good time was had by all. Staff estimated the crowd at 3500 to 4000, and aside from a few faintings, considerable drinking, a wiff or two of 420 celebrating, and some sunburn, there was nothing negative to report.

Nearby streets were posted with “Local Access Only – No Event Parking” and many rode bicycles.

I even returned this morning to check on the clean-up, and everything looked good.

It was, however, clear that a crowd of 50,000 (AEG’s proposaed Mile High Music Festival) would have been way over the park’s capacity.

(Anyone recognize the group playing? I wanted to give them credit but forgot to ask their name. Please comment if you know.)
