Walk-A-Bout: "The Other Side of Riverside"
Saturday, July 17th at 9:00am.

Due to popular demand for this tour we are doing it again, this time with even more unusual people and monuments! And, to help celebrate Old Globeville Days there will be special emphasis on Globeville stories and the orthodox section of the cemetery.

Tour guide Jeff Stoffel will highlight some of Riverside's unsung and colorful residents. We'll also discuss the symbolism and materials of the monuments and art as well as some info on the flora and fauna of the park.

The walk starts at the office at 9 am and we'll wrap up by 11 am. Bring sunscreen, sun umbrella's, water and your walking shoes. Please keep in mind there are no facilities at Riverside.

After the tour take a short drive to the Orthodox Food Festival & Old Globeville Days for a cold drink and a plate of the best ethnic festival food in Denver.

Enjoy authentic food, entertainment and live music from Russia, Romania, Serbia, Ukraine, Eritrea, Greece & Mexico. Also enjoy a look at the historical landmark church with it's beautiful iconography.

This simple app provides lots of funny facts that you have ever
known. It seems like the internet today is almost entirely full of nothing but funny pictures and videos that people use to
pass their days. Many of the paintings have a tendency to use a

Laughter is a best solution of fear, anger and boredom.
Emotions have great impact on our human body because when we have emotions,
our body changes throwing our body in balance and preparing us for remaining happy and healthy.
