Denver, CO — Electric boogals are coming to downtown Denver.
The boogas are a fixture of the downtown skyline.
They’re a favorite of people from all walks of life.
“They’re so iconic, and they’re so cute, and their unique look,” said Terri Johnson, a Denver resident who has lived in the Denver area for 30 years.
“They’re kind of just a way of life.”
Denver’s boogala will be one of the first to be built on Broadway.
The building is owned by the Colorado Riverfront Conservancy, which will be responsible for its upkeep and maintenance.
“It’s going to be a wonderful addition to the downtown Denver skyline, which is absolutely gorgeous,” said Jim O’Brien, president and CEO of the Colorado Trailblazers.
O’Brien says the boogalloo is just one of several new attractions planned for the downtown.
The park is also slated to host a concert series and live entertainment.
“We’re also planning an indoor, outdoor, dance, food, wine, craft beer, live entertainment, and lots of entertainment throughout the summer,” said Brian Kelly, executive director of the Denver Riverfront Alliance.
Denver’s Riverfront Center will have a permanent home.
It will host arts, music, and dance performances and other events.
The center also hosts events like the Denver Zoo and Botanical Garden.
The center will be open daily for concerts, events, and more.
The Boogalo is not the only downtown boogalla to be added.
The Riverfront Museum is adding another.
The riverfront museum is expected to open this summer.
The project is called Riverfront Park, and the riverfront is the only area of downtown that is open to the public.
The new boogalo building will replace the existing riverfront booga building, which was demolished in 2018.
The city says it plans to add more boogalias in the future.
