Outdoor picnics, patriotic hymns and fireworks – there’s nothing more American the 4th of July and there are several Northern Colorado communities that do a wonderful job at keeping this tradition truly red, white and blue.

This year the Mid Season Championships and

As many of you already know, I’m crazy about Celtic festivals. I grew up attending a Scottish/Irish festival in Washington State where the massing of the bands took up two football fields. When they played Amazing Grace and Scotland the Brave, my hair would stand on end. While the Rocky Mountain Irish Festival, formerly the Fort Collins Irish Festival, has had a bumpy ride over the last year, I have
