On their way to an earlier Territory Days

       This new painting by Westside artist Chris Alvarez, exclusively created for this edition of the Westside Pioneer, depicts an old-time family in the region on their way to a festive occasion. If it was this time of year and the annual Territory Days had started at a much earlier date, that’s probably where they’d be going. Featuring live music, attractions, displays and interactive activities (many in an Old West theme), plus about 200 vendors on closed-off Colorado Avenue, the event between 23rd and 27th streets will kick off at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 26 and continue during daytime hours Sunday and Monday. See Alvarez STORY, PHOTO, page 4. See Territory Days SCHEDULE, PHOTO, back page.
