This year Springs Spree celebrates 35 years of providing Colorado Springs with FREE Family Fun for everyone! Springs Spree 2012, one of our city’s oldest community celebrations, will be held in Memorial Park in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Springs Spree has been one of the region’s most anticipated events, drawing up to 70,000 people in attendance last year who enjoyed a variety of entertainment that included the best live, regional, and national musicians/bands and cultural dancers that performed free to the public on Springs Spree’s three stages. Springs Spree has always been known for the variety of delicious food, unique exhibitions, and a wide variety of entertainment for all ages.
Springs Spree will cater to the kids once again with a full carnival featuring attractions ranging from kiddy rides to the latest, greatest most extreme carnival rides for the brave at heart. Last year, the Springs Spree Kid Zone was a huge hit with children. The Kid Zone featured a mini city of jump inflatables and obstacle courses, Human Hamster Ball Rides, Bungee trampolines, the Springs Spree Choo Choo Express, face painting and much more.
