As a longtime Westsider, I generally make it a point to avoid Territory Days, the Memorial-Day-weekend-long festival of all things kitsch, cowboy and corn in Old Colorado City. Having your neighborhood turn into a parking lot for three days in itself is enough to grumble, but when you add public intoxication and Major League amounts of testosterone, it can often become what my son likes to refer to as “Territorial Days”.

Last year, after years of avoiding it, I decided to wander back into the labyrinth of funnel cakes and turkey legs to have a look and listen. If nothing else, Territory Days is a visually and aurally fascinating landscape you can experience here in just under five minutes.
