    Which does not change that we have a large Juneteenth celebration in Denver each year and have for most of my life. (Actually all of it, celebrations started in Colorado in the 1950s...)

    According to the Denver Public Library, Denver’s Juneteenth celebration began in the early 1950s “and eventually grew to be one of the nation’s largest celebrations of its kind.” It was in the 1980s that the celebration moved to Five Points. The Juneteenth Music Festival as we know it today started in 2012. Rocky Mountain PBS is one of the sponsors of this year's celebration.

    Oddly, I wouldn't have to "prove" things like that and make you look like an idiot if folks used "the googles" all by themselves like big boys.
    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
    - -- Aristotle

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.

    Also, Pride Day shouldn't be on this thread, apparently for the first year since I have paid attention to this day they didn't hold it on Father's Day, they are using the Sunday following Father's day for the parade and Pride Fest...

    This does not say that everyone in Colorado knew about it. I know people from Colorado, none of them agree with you and yeah, I asked them about this. You mentioned juneteenth one time in here, I did the search, guess how many times you mentioned Festivus FFS. Or Cinco de Mayo.

    You're thinking I'm nit-picking right now, and you're right. I am. You of all people should know better than to engage in what you're engaging in right now.

    Right, how old do you think I am? Eventually would be about the time I grew up, most of my life we have had celebrations of Juneteenth in Denver. This idea that I am somehow lying to you about this is absurd.

    Your pedantic effort to "catch" me at something has failed. Once you find yourself in a hole you are digging you should put down the shovel rather than try to dig faster...

    Yeah, the music festival "returns" because it wasn't held due to Covid. However, Juneteenth (even before the music festival began in 2012 or so) has been celebrated in Denver since the 80s at least. I used to go with my friends, then I took my kids. You know been going there "most of my life" as I accurately described...

    Yeah, 1950s. So, it's been around longer than me, but not always in Five Points in Denver.
