Bands on the Bricks Commemorates the 45th Anniversary of the Pearl Street Mall

Celebrate 45 years of the bricks with the last concert of the summer season

Boulder, CO [July 28, 2022] –  The 26th annual Bands on the Bricks free summer concert series concludes on Wednesday, August 3, 2022 with a celebration of Pearl Street Mall’s 45th Anniversary. There will be trivia questions about the Pearl Street Mall scattered throughout announcements during the evening, with the opportunity to win one of four $45 Downtown Boulder Gift Cards for correct guesses. Additionally, the first 45 people to stop by the Downtown Boulder Partnership tent can claim a Welcome to Your Happy Place-branded water bottle. While at the tent, attendees are invited to share their thoughts and ideas about possible futures of downtown Boulder through a variety of interactive activities and short surveys that will help formulate the Downtown Boulder Five Year Vision Plan..
