While the Summer season isn't officially upon us, events across Northern Colorado are starting to pick up and there is something for the whole family.

Here is the great thing about events in Northern Colorado:

They're family friendly...

They're cost effective...

There is always something going on in the region.

But what events should you make it a priority to attend in the month of May? Whether it's flying a kite, jumping on an inflatable, or listening to live music, you really have your choice of what you want to invest your time in.
