Annual Springs Spree held at America the Beautiful Park

Community

The 41st annual Springs Spree was held Sunday at America the Beautiful Park.

This year’s event had new organizers. They said it’s still a family-friendly free event, but without the carnival feel. There were activities for kids of all ages, with an emphasis on supporting our community. 

“It’s Springs Spree,” organizer Jon Eddy said. “It’s about us. It’s about Colorado Springs. So if you’ll notice, all of the businesses that are here, all of the folks that have set up activities, these are all local Colorado, and primarily Colorado Springs, companies. We believe in supporting local, and that’s what we want to do with this event.” 

Organizers estimate more than 4,000 people came out to the event.
