We stumbled onto our first sculpture--a giant bicycle at the intersection of Main and Fifth Streets (above). When we spotted the second sculpture -- 'Sip n' Splash' -- across the street, we knew we were in a very special downtown.

Three-quarters of the collection consists of permanent sculpture and the remainder is part of the annual invitational one-year show. The temporary pieces are for sale to the public.
There is also a splash area for children that is open during the hot months. Little kids (and an occasional big kid) run through this interactive fountain to keep cool.
Another post spotlights the retro Main Street Cafe and the Museum of Western Colorado which is also a cool place to spend a hot afternoon.
