Celebrate Halloween with music and stories.

Pronounced 'sahwen', this was an important holiday for many of the Gaelic speaking people. It was a celebration of the end of harvest and the beginning of winter, or 'dark half' of the year. It was a time when the 'other world' was very close, bonfires were lit, food and drink left outside for the 'Si' (pronounced 'she', meaning the fairy folk), and places set at the table for deceased loved ones.  A time of celebration, of feasting, of storytelling and power, eventually morphing into 'Halloween'. Please join Willson & McKee for a step back into a magical time of the ancients and welcome in the winter season with songs, tunes, stories and more.

All ages are welcome to this family friendly event!

This is a Manitou Springs Library program held at the Community Congregational Church, 103 Pawnee Ave. Free parking is available in the church parking lot.

Lorraine Hansberry's revelatory masterpiece canonized her place in the civil rights movement and electrified generations of activists and artists alike. In a small tenement on Chicago's South Side, a family awaits a check that will make all their dreams come true. Momma wants a nice house, Beneatha wants to go to medical school, and Walter Lee schemes to buy a liquor store. With gentrification happening in neighborhoods all around us, Raisin is as powerful, thought-provoking, and timely as it was in 1959.

[more+]

This annual event is always A LOT of fun! This year Colorado Photography Learning Group is collaborating the the City of Colorado Springs, the Colorado Springs Downtown Partnership, Old Colorado City and the Manitou Creative District to celebrate the Creative Corridor that stretches along Colorado and Manitou avenues. This is also an opportunity to support our community by participating in a pilot program to have your photos considered for inclusion in PlanCOS and for them to be used by the Downtown Partnership and the city of Manitou Springs.

Meet at the Manitou Art Center at 2 p.m. to discuss the rules and divide into teams. Free parking is available at the MAC and along Manitou Avenue near the MAC.

The scavenger hunt will end up at Local Relic in the Carter Payne Chapel (320 S. Weber) at 5:30 p.m. for dinner and to compile the photos/determine the winning teams. Parking at Local Relic is free along Pueblo Avenue.

Please note that this event requires a considerable amount of walking and is not suitable for young children or those who have difficulty being on their feet for several hours. Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Participants will be divided into teams of 5 or 6 and given a list of items to shoot. Each team will have three hours to gather as many items as they can from the list, and each item will be worth a certain amount of points. This will be a race against the clock, and the list will be designed so that no team will be able to get a photo of every item on it. Your team will have to determine a strategy that will make the best use of your time while collecting the most points possible. Each team will present its photos to the other teams after dinner.

Colorado Photography Learning Group will award prizes from local businesses to all members of the teams with the most points. Your team's final score depends on your ability to capture as much content on the list and not your photography skills, so this is a great event for beginners.

Celebrate Halloween with music and stories.

Pronounced 'sahwen', this was an important holiday for many of the Gaelic speaking people. It was a celebration of the end of harvest and the beginning of winter, or 'dark half' of the year. It was a time when the 'other world' was very close, bonfires were lit, food and drink left outside for the 'Si' (pronounced 'she', meaning the fairy folk), and places set at the table for deceased loved ones.  A time of celebration, of feasting, of storytelling and power, eventually morphing into 'Halloween'. Please join Willson & McKee for a step back into a magical time of the ancients and welcome in the winter season with songs, tunes, stories and more.

All ages are welcome to this family friendly event!

This is a Manitou Springs Library program held at the Community Congregational Church, 103 Pawnee Ave. Free parking is available in the church parking lot.

Lorraine Hansberry's revelatory masterpiece canonized her place in the civil rights movement and electrified generations of activists and artists alike. In a small tenement on Chicago's South Side, a family awaits a check that will make all their dreams come true. Momma wants a nice house, Beneatha wants to go to medical school, and Walter Lee schemes to buy a liquor store. With gentrification happening in neighborhoods all around us, Raisin is as powerful, thought-provoking, and timely as it was in 1959.

This annual event is always A LOT of fun! This year Colorado Photography Learning Group is collaborating the the City of Colorado Springs, the Colorado Springs Downtown Partnership, Old Colorado City and the Manitou Creative District to celebrate the Creative Corridor that stretches along Colorado and Manitou avenues. This is also an opportunity to support our community by participating in a pilot program to have your photos considered for inclusion in PlanCOS and for them to be used by the Downtown Partnership and the city of Manitou Springs.

Meet at the Manitou Art Center at 2 p.m. to discuss the rules and divide into teams. Free parking is available at the MAC and along Manitou Avenue near the MAC.

The scavenger hunt will end up at Local Relic in the Carter Payne Chapel (320 S. Weber) at 5:30 p.m. for dinner and to compile the photos/determine the winning teams. Parking at Local Relic is free along Pueblo Avenue.

Please note that this event requires a considerable amount of walking and is not suitable for young children or those who have difficulty being on their feet for several hours. Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Participants will be divided into teams of 5 or 6 and given a list of items to shoot. Each team will have three hours to gather as many items as they can from the list, and each item will be worth a certain amount of points. This will be a race against the clock, and the list will be designed so that no team will be able to get a photo of every item on it. Your team will have to determine a strategy that will make the best use of your time while collecting the most points possible. Each team will present its photos to the other teams after dinner.

Colorado Photography Learning Group will award prizes from local businesses to all members of the teams with the most points. Your team's final score depends on your ability to capture as much content on the list and not your photography skills, so this is a great event for beginners.
