Possible trouble at Denver’s Marade, the trouble with ice and how one representative is dealing with an influx of ACA concerns are all part of Sunday’s news.

Moving in or around the Marade on Monday.

If you want to march and hear speeches for Denver’s celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., here’s how. If you’ve got somewhere else to be, here’s how to efficiently not get stuck in traffic. (Denverite)

Meanwhile, some people are worried that the marade see costly confrontations.

Last year, an audience heckled Mayor Hancock during his speech, and it cost organizers corporate sponsors. Now organizers are concerned that KKK appearances and dissatisfaction over Donald Trump could make for another raucous and potentially costly year. (DP)

Rep. Mike Coffman’s community event had lots of people talking ACA.

The crowd at Saturday’s community event was looking for answers about healthcare, but Coffman only met with four people at a time and ducked out a few minutes early. (9News)

Snowpack levels bounced back super fast.

Colorado has about 75 percent of its annual statewide snowpack, with half of the snow season to go. (CBSDenver)

Denver housing market looks different depending on whether you rent or buy.

Abodo, ApartmentList, ATTOM Data Solutions, Axiometrics, Clear Capital, Colorado Association of Realtors, Denver Metro Association of Realtors, RealPage, VeroForecast and Zillow all have data on the Denver real estate market. Basically it boils down to the rental market being a more chill place at the moment. (DP)

Keep your pets off the ice.

I gasp about fictional people in danger, please don’t make me gasp over your beloved pet. Firefighters are getting more calls to rescue pets off of ice, or sometimes to rescue animals that have fallen through it. (Fox31)

Today in Denver:
  • Booze for a cause! Well, two causes if you count getting tipsy as a cause unto itself. Ratio Beerworks has an interactive dining experience to benefit GrowHaus.
  • You can also go to the stock show, see a show, and more. (Denverite)
