BBQ picnic, then puppet show at Westside Community Center July 29A free “neighborhood picnic” at 5 p.m. will precede a puppet show at 6:30 p.m. at the Westside Community Center Tuesday, July 29.
The event is a combined effort by the center, 1628 W. Bijou St., and the Old Colorado City Library.
“We're just trying to do something for the neighborhood,” said Janice Rosebush of the center. She added that a grill will be set up, with volunteers cooking burgers and hotdogs, with lemonade also available.
The puppet show will be by Alanna Jones, in a presentation of "The Little Engine That Could."
The picnic/show will go on, rain or shine, with the Community Center having activity space indoors.
The plans got finalized only the day before the event, when flyers started being handed out in the neighborhood and in Old Colorado City and Uintah Gardens, Rosebush explained. Previous information from the center had announced the starting time for the picnic/puppet show as 6 p.m. (an hour later).
Because of space limitations at the library's historic Carnegie building, its staffers have an agreement with the Community Center to hold larger events they plan at the center. The puppet show is one of those.
