Last Saturday I had the pleasure of taking part in Mile High Youth Productions’ Spring into Summer Youth Festival held at Devner Skate Park. Basically it was a festival of information for kids on what things are going on in the Denver area this summer. Everyone from the Salvation Army to the TS Skate shop were there.
It wasn’t just booths filled with pamphlets about reading programs at your local library. There were a lot of cool things going on. They tried to expand kids’ ideas of what’s available to them for summer activities. If you like cars, they had classic cars on display, and people that offer internships at auto shops. They had information on summer skateboarding camps while a couple skate teams put on demos. They had dance troupes doing exhibitions — everything from traditional Aztec dances to traditional Mexican dances.
