The Southern Ute Indian Tribe was invited to attend the 76th annual Music and Blossom Festival, Saturday May 3. Public relations, Sky Ute Casino Resort, a drum group, heritage dancers and royalty all joined together to help represent the tribe. The event included a block party, where guests were able to visit the tribe’s public relations booth to ask questions and enter a drawing for prizes. The block party also gave the audience a chance to view a mini-powwow and participate in a round dance. The event continued into the afternoon with royalty riding a float through the parade. Later in the evening, another mini-powwow was held at Veteran’s Park in Cañon City. The evening ended with happy prize winners and one final farewell round dance.
