After a year of uncertainty, we’re more excited than ever to welcome visitors back to get out and explore everything that our downtown district has to discover and rediscoverWhat are you most excited to do again? Whether it’s rooftop drinks at sunset, al fresco dining on the extended outdoor patios, or just getting back to strolling around the Pearl Street Mall, we want to see how you’re enjoying Boulder. 

All you have to do is take photos and share them on social media* for your chance to win. One winner will be randomly chosen each month this summer by DBP staff.
