This summer, Wheat Ridge parents will never need to hear, “There’s nothing to do!” Children of all ages can look forward to summer full of great activities and camps offered by Wheat Ridge Parks and Recreation.
Inspired by Edgewater Days, the three-day festival will offer a variety of activities for locals and visitors alike. Wildermiss, a local up and coming band, will be headlining the Edgewater Community Festival on Saturday night, May 13.
Deep Roots, Short Commutes. Wheat Ridge’s slogan is a nod not only to the city’s convenient location, but also to its rich heritage. The story of its past can’t be gleaned from apps or television screens but instead is found in lively conversations between neighbors and the quiet nostalgia of old photographs.
