On June 21 Metro State will close out its yearlong 45th anniversary celebration with a bang.
The finale event, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on the Ninth Street Park, will feature family-friendly activities and guided tours of Historic Ninth Street Park. Live music will be provided by Tito Milaga, a world music band that plays a combination of flamenco, gypsy, rumba, bolero and salsa.
A barbeque dinner will be served, capped by cake from Cake Crumbs, an alumni-owned bakery. Bottles of Rowdy Red, the limited edition cabernet franc, will be available for purchase, with 100 percent of the profits supporting scholarships at Metro State.
Attendees will have the opportunity to purchase a signed copy of “Where the Rivers Meet,” the story of the Westside Neighborhood and the displaced Aurarians, whose sacrifices provided for the College’s unique urban downtown campus.
In addition, the recipient of the 45th anniversary scholarship will be recognized at the event.
