Weather Considerations 

The current weather forecast for Saturday shows a high likelihood of rain and snow showers; Goldens in Golden will continue as planned unless otherwise noted on this page  (although it may be a bit of a “soggy doggy” gathering!). City staff will monitor incoming weather, and in the event of dangerously icy streets or heavy snowfall, Goldens in Golden may be canceled. Before heading out, check the here as conditions in Colorado can change quickly.
Please dress warmly and watch your step at the event as streets may be wet or icy. It is February in Colorado, so dress in layers and wear appropriate footwear.
Goldens love water, but there’s a lot of ice along Clear Creek, making it very slippery and cold. Please keep your Golden on a leash and avoid the water.
