Art lovers, athletes, families and more will "Spring into Green" 10th annual event. At 8:00 AM Saturday, June 15, 2019, at Mylar Park in Cheyenne, participants are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite work of art or artist. So, do not be surprised if you see a Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Ansel Adams, Salvador Dali, Rodin or Georgia O'Keeffe. Everyone will have an opportunity to view the new art installations along the Greenway trail and temporary art along the trail. Racers will be showered with confetti from above at the finish line. After the race, entrants are encouraged to stay for food, awards and try their hand at creating their own piece of art.
The Cheyenne Greenway Foundation was conceived in the summer of 2008 when a member of the Greenway Advisory Committee suggested that the Committee do some fundraising to fund enhancements and beautification projects on the Greenway. Obviously, this type of event was a perfect fit as it raises needed funds, and it allows more people to experience the Greenway differently. The funding helps provide free rides on the Greenway on the first Saturday of the month.
Check-in for the experience at 10:00 AM May through September 2019 starting and ending at the Lions Park Re-Ride Station.
