Bronco-mania to hit Craig
Do you bleed orange and blue?
If so, Wednesday is the day to show it.
The city of Craig was chosen by the Denver Broncos to compete for the rights to be called the Broncos' biggest fans.
If chosen, the Broncos Cheerleaders and alumni will visit Craig for a celebration, complete with a Super Bowl trophy and championship rings.
A city of Craig flag also will be flown at Invesco Field at Mile High during a Broncos home game.
The event, labeled the "preseason orange and blue Broncos-mania party" kicks off at 10:30 a.m. at the Boys & Girls Club of Craig.
Activities move to the football field at Craig Middle School from 5 to 8 p.m., when event organizer Tony Maneotis will give away Broncos tickets for the upcoming season.
"Bronco-mania" concludes at the OP Bar & Grill, as fans will be treated to drink and burger specials between 8 and 10 p.m.
Interested participants are strongly encouraged to don the Bronco blue and orange.
"We want everybody to come out in their Broncos gear," Maneotis said. "Young or old, come out and get wild with us. We want to show the Denver Broncos we are the team's biggest fans.
"We are going to show them we bleed orange and blue."
