Get the kids out of the house on Thursday August 1st and celebrate the Centennial State on it's 143rd birthday.

Make a short drive to the History Colorado Center for an epic day of fun for all ages. Experience animals, Smokey Bear, balloons, food, bounce house, dancers, face paining, music, and photos with Denver mascots.

This year's celebration will include the very first outdoor block party, and inside the History Colorado Center you can find four floors of interactive exhibits.

The event is free and open to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
