Denver’s looking forward to a wild Saturday night — and all the traffic headaches that brings. Country star Luke Combs will be playing a massive show at Empower Field at Mile High that will likely attract fans from all over the West. The Rockies are playing the New York Mets. And the much neglected but quite skilled Colorado Mammoth will be playing a playoff game at Ball Arena.
All that takes place from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Saturday. That means parking nightmares. Driving nightmares. Heck, even public-transit nightmares.
Add on top of that: snow — at least, the threat of it. Yes, for newcomers and disappointed gardeners, it snows in May, from time to time, in Denver.
“With this in mind, the Denver Police Department asks people to be safe and vigilant with the number of events in close proximity,” the department wrote. “Those traveling around Coors Field, Empower Field at Mile High and Ball Arena area are encouraged to scout potential parking options, plan their routes and means of travel beforehand while allowing for plenty of extra time to arrive at their destination.”
