3. Love the Ford Mustang? Then you’ll want to head to Edgewater for an interesting gathering

You may not know it (I certainly didn’t) but apparently, April 17 is National Mustang Day. To celebrate, the Colorado Mustang Stampede will take over Edgewater on Sunday, April 14 with a mountain cruise starting from Boss Auto Designs at 2826 Eaton St. beginning at 10 a.m. The stampede will then go through Goldengate Canyon and end at the El Rancho Restaurant with a coordinated lunch.

4. A one-of-a-kind race is happening this Saturday in Steamboat Springs

Steamboat’s traditional rite of spring returns to the Steamboat Ski area for the 42nd Cardboard Classic.

The races begins at 11:30 a.m. at the Stampede Run, 2305 Mt. Werner Circle. More info. here.
