Everyone had a blast searching for eggs, enjoying the games and activities, and making new friends.

Is exploring the winter sights and sounds of Colorado on your New Year’s resolutions list? If so, we have a great lineup of snow-packed (and heated, indoor) activities that are sure to get your adventurous spirit up and going this month.
Visit Aurora describes the exhibit as “Showcasing both Dalí’s challenges and triumphs, the breathtaking production dynamically animates the works of the incomparable artist, providing visitors with the sensation of stepping into the life of Salvador Dalí himself and feeling the redemptive power of his imagination. Displayed over 13,000 square feet, including full coverage, multi-sensory projection gallery featuring spatial audio technology, DALÍ ALIVE explores how the artist continually reinvented himself – his place, his person, his family, and his very human transience – to overcome obstacles.”
While you’re there, be sure to check out the local restaurants and retail options at the Stanley Marketplace. It’s a great place to spend a snowy day in January!
The Stanley Marketplace is located at 2501 Dallas Street, Aurora 80010. For more information about the exhibit, email: [email protected].

Building sandcastles is one thing, but carving a 20-ton block of snow with nothing but hand tools? We’ll leave that up to the talented artists from around the world that compete each year at the Breckenridge International Snow Sculpture Championships. This free event is open to the public, and locals say the best time to go is at night when the sculptures are lit up with multiple lights to accentuate the fine lines and details that make these true works of art. It’s a great day trip, or overnighter if you want to explore the rest of Breckenridge a bit more. To plan your trip, visit the Go Breck website.

Built in Painted Prairie, the 2022 Inspiration House contributes $323,000 to Home Builders Foundation
DENVER, Colo. (Nov. 10, 2022) – Earlier this year, KB Home volunteered to be the partnering home builder for the 2022 Inspiration House. KB Home selected a new home build in Aurora’s Painted Prairie development and reached out to their trade partners to explain the purpose of the Inspiration House, which is a fundraiser for the nonprofit Home Builders Foundation(HBF). The Developers of Painted Prairie immediately donated the full cost of the beautiful corner lot on which the home was built. Over the next few months, an additional 32 partners signed on to donate or discount the cost of labor and/or materials for the 2022 Inspiration House. On October 19th, project participants came together for a recognition ceremony followed by a ribbon cutting at the new home and the formal check presentation. Thanks to the collaboration between KB Home and their trade partners, a check for $323,181 was presented to HBF.
This is the eighth Inspiration House to be completed since the program’s initiation in 2003. The program was put on hold during the housing recession and resurrected in 2019. The 2022 Inspiration House had the largest number of participating trades, the shortest build time and provided the largest check to HBF since the resurrection.
Randy Carpenter, President of KB Home’s Colorado division, attributes the success of this year’s Inspiration House to the company’s Built on Relationships philosophy and the generosity of the building industry. KB Home reached out to its trade partners to discuss various ways the companies could support Inspiration House. “The individuals within the Colorado homebuilding community are among the most generous people in the state. I am extremely proud of our team, the relationships we have built and everyone who played a role in this year’s Inspiration House,” Carpenter said.
Beth Forbes, HBF’s Executive Director, was awed by the tremendous check presented during the ceremony. Forbes shared, “The impact of these funds is huge. The demand for home modifications – which we provide to clients free of charge – continues to increase. And this very generous donation will allow us to complete even more projects to elevate lives.” Carpenter added, “The work HBF does empowers those with unique situations. We hope our efforts improve the lives of their clients and enable them to remain in their home no matter the circumstances.”
Teresa N., an HBF client who has a brittle bone disorder and purchased her first home this year, attended the celebration. HBF modified the front and back decks at Teresa’s home and also widened doorways so that she is now able to utilize both her interior and exterior spaces. She expressed her appreciation to HBF and the crew who worked on the modifications, saying, “It means everything. It just brings me great joy.”
The 33 trade partners who joined KB Home and donated time and services to complete the 2022 Inspiration House include:
|All Pro Electric||Elite Painting Company||J.M. Huber Corporation|
|Ankmar® Garage Doors / DH Pace||Emser Tile||Kohler|
