Castle Rock Spring Up the Creek Event, 2013

Spring Up the Creek 2013

Spring Up the Creek continues to grow, and we need your help. Local volunteers - families, business teams, and students make the event a civic, community and family tradition in Castle Rock, for the tenth year in a row.

To volunteer, preregister at CRgov.com/SUregister or call 720-733-6011. Or, simply show up at Festival Park (at Second and Perry streets) at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, May 4. Cleanup starts a 9 a.m. If you preregister online, remember to print our your waiver, sign it and bring with you when you check in the morning of the event.

Event partners will provide work gloves, trash bags and giveaways. And, as always, the clean-up is timed to leave the waterways clean for the Castle Rock Rotary Ducky Derby. T-shirts will be given to the first 250 participants to show up that morning.

After the clean-up, volunteers are invited to enjoy activities on Second Street, adjacent to Festival Park. Children can create arts and crafts with The Greater Castle Rock Art Guild artists and receive free balloon art to take home.

Teens who want their work to count toward community service hours must bring a Community Service waiver already signed by their parents.

Second Street will be closed for the event, so participants should park in the Town Hall parking lot, 100 N. Wilcox St., and walk up to Perry Street to access the park.

In case of very inclement weather, the event will be held Saturday, May 18. Check CRgov.com for updates.

All of the rides start and finish at The Douglas County Fair Grounds in Castle Rock. After a day in the saddle, plan to stick around for the Party at the Rock post-ride picnic and cycling expo.
