Grand Lakers celebrate signing of U.S. Constitution

Special to the Sky Hi

GRAND LAKE — A week-long event in Grand Lake is centered on celebrating the signing of the nation’s most revered document.

The Constitution of the United States was signed on Sept. 17, 1787. Although the 4th of July in 1776 became the birth of our nation and our independence from England, the Constitution is what defined our nation and its people.

For the second year, Grand Lake has been one of the few locations in the nation celebrating the signing of the Constitution.

The event includes notable speakers, bar and restaurant trivia, games in the park, a parade, a 5k run or walk, and fireworks. The public is invited to participate in the free Constitution Week events mostly sponsored by local businesses. Everyone is encouraged to show their patriotic spirit by decorating their homes and storefronts in red, white, and blue.
