Boulder Creek Festival
What began in 1988 as a small gathering of local volunteers who intended to clean debris from Boulder Creek, has spawned into a three-day festival that attracts upwards to 150,000 people. However, cleaning is no longer the focus. Today the festival is a family oriented celebration of Boulder's diversity. Various displays like the Art Show, the Marketplace, and the International showcase local talent with handmade crafts and live performances. For the kids, there are amusement rides and a children's fishing derby. The now famous Rubber Duck Race down Boulder Creek culminates the festival. Admission is free. See their website for further details.
