July is here, which means summer weather is in full swing! Most residents head to the Stepping Stone pool or the mountains to beat the heat, but it’s always good to enjoy the warmth while we can. We’re sharing events that will get you outside or at least get you out of the house during this warm, sunny month. And best of all, these events are free!
DISCOVERY PARK SUMMER CONCERT SERIES
Thursday, July 19, 6-9pm, Discovery Park Amphitheater
Pack a picnic and lawn chairs and head down to Discovery Park to soak in the sounds of summer! Food trucks will be onsite but no alcoholic beverages allowed. The featured live performance is “Wash Park”, known for their reproductions of the horn band era dance music from the 1970s to the top 40 hits of today.
SENIOR ENRICHMENT: LINE DANCING
Tuesdays/Thursdays in July, 9-10:30am, PACE Center
Come learn the basic steps for country line dances. Not only do you get to meet new people, you’ll also gain the confidence to get out on the floor and have fun. A perfect class for fans of country, big band swing, west coast swing, and Latin styles of music. Please wear light weight clothing and shoes with a little slide.
SUNSET CINEMA – FANTASTIC MR. FOX
Tuesday, July 10, 7-10pm, Denver Performing Arts Complex
This year’s Sunset Cinema season is dedicated to Wes Anderson, and in July the featured movie is “Fantastic Mr. Fox.” This stop-action film and its director will be celebrated with movie trivia, themed craft cocktails, a photo experience, and a costume contest. This is an outdoor event, so bring a chair and be prepared for any kind of weather.
WE MAKE OUR OWN WINGS – ART EXHIBIT
On exhibit through August 25, ATC DEN Gallery
Three Denver artists — Emma Balder, Bonnie Ferrill Roman and Yoshitomo Saito — are featured in this exhibition. It promises to be uplifting and beautiful to look at, whether your attention is directed toward Balder’s organic fiber paintings, Roman’s sculptural installation constructed from paper, or Saito’s nature-inspired bronze sculpture and wall installations. Make this a date night with dinner next door at critically acclaimed restaurant Hop Alley.
