What started as a dream for an industrious young man is now becoming reality. With the help of the city, some local experts, a flock of volunteers and the support of family, the Brighton Jumpspot is becoming a reality. Brighton has been home to a super skatepark that has attracted locals to its variety of bowls and features but for young dirt jumpers and freeriders the closest thing was a car ride away. These riders were hungry for something a bit closer to home.
Logan Holland is one such rider. Logan has been instrumental in working with the city of Brighton and soliciting the help of Plus Size BMX and course designers Chris Olivier and Phil Rowe. Over the past five days these guys and a horde of volunteers have moved literally loads of dirt, shaped, watered and formed what will be one of the finest riding opportunities in Colorado. With the slew of young talent that is coming out of the area this new facility is really a dream come true.
Even the hard working volunteers need a break now and then.
The Mile High Horror Film Festival provides Denver horror fans even more reason to love October. In its third year the festival has proven that it is here to stay. Great films, terrifying stars, writers, directors and huge crowds made this three day event a monster success. The films were short, long, troubling and wonderful. The guest list for this year’s event was extremely deep and well known to horror aficionados.
Colorado’s own Jonathan Tiersten charmed the crowd, a Monster Panel featuring Eileen Dietz, Kane Hodder, Bill Moseley kept the audience on the edge of their seats, Corey Feldman entertained a packed house and Jeffrey Riddick, Dan Myrcik and Brian McCulley spoke to fans about trends in the horror genre.
MHHFF Executive Director Tim Schultz and Programming Director Theresa Likarish and sponsors including Fearnet, The Onion, 13th Floor Haunted House and lots more provided attendees with an event that rivals the best of what horror fans demand.
