Art on the Streets: For 19 years, the annual Art on the Streets program has transformed our downtown streets into an outdoor sculpture gallery. Stops sample the currently-installed pieces and offer insight into the artists behind them. (Jan. 7, Apr. 1, Jul. 1, Oct. 7)
The Story of Us: Facilitated by staffers of the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum, this tour takes you back in time to understand how neighborhoods, businesses, climate and transportation have shaped our community. Where do you fit in? Come and discover your place in local history through The Story of Us! (Feb. 4, May 6, Aug. 5, Nov. 4)
Wild Card Tours: Take a walk on the wild side! Every third month in 2017, join staffers from the Downtown Partnership and the Pioneers Museum for an insider’s view of Downtown history and culture.

Each topic will be offered only once, so don’t miss out: mark your calendar for all four Wild Card dates and prepare to be surprised and delighted! (Mar. 4, Jun. 3, Sept. 2, Dec. 2)
