420 in the Streets – Recap

Cervantes shut down the block of Welton street on 4/20 for one whole day to celebrate Denver’s favorite holiday. A variety of Colorado locals as well as out-of-towners packed the street for one of the most unique 4/20 events I have yet to experience.

There were a few different vendors set up – Grassroots California, some food trucks, jewelry and t-shirt stands, and the people watching was prime. Security was super tight – Cervantes staff, Denver PD, as well as additional security saturated the event searching for any and all puffs of marijuana smoke. Lucky ones received a warning – others were removed instantly. The event began around 1pm and ended at 9:30 and the bar stopped served alcohol around 5pm due to residents in the Five Points area attempting to get the event shut down. Not only was the party not shut down, but it only grew as the day went on. However, an outdoor 4/20 show at Cervantes certainly left more than a few of us wondering what the day was really about anymore.

The music certainly saved the day – The Reminders, Con Brio and the Underachievers started things off right early in the day. During Dizzy Wright’s performance and countdown to 4:20pm, Joey Bada$$, who was scheduled to perform at Cervantes later that night, made a surprise appearance on stage, just before Dizzy jumped off stage and into the eager crowd. Later that evening, Flatbush Zombies and Collie Buddz got the crowd hyped up for the most anticipated acts of the day – Cypress Hill, followed by Redman and Method Man. The crowd was eager to celebrate 4/20 with these two acts and now that it was dark, security didn’t matter anymore – everyone participated and the true meaning of the holiday was restored.
