Colorado Springs Real Estate Facts & Fun


Happy 303 Day Colorado

We know we have some great holidays to celebrate throughout the year but Colorado has a local day of its own.  We call it 303 day. It happens on March 3rd with the first one starting March 3, 2009.

Just what is Colorado 303 day?  Glad you asked. It is celebrating all things Denver and Colorado and is named after the state's first "303" area code.  Colorado based, Denver Channel 93.3 and Illegal Pete's Burrito restaurant chain started the 303 Day in Colorado in 2009.    Since the inception 303 Magazine has become a part of this "holiday".  This is not recognized as an official State holiday but many do acknowledge it and participate in it.


Today you just may find $3.03 food specials to help celebrate the day as well as Illegal Pete's burritos, margaritas,  drinks, Colorado and Denver based brews, special play lists, music (free concert), Colorado clothing giveaways and more.


If you see more Colorado themed clothing today this just may be why.  What do you love about Colorado?  Tweet with #303day.  For me I love the outdoor lifestyle and all the ways to live, admire love and celebrate this.
