#4. Aurorans Love To Get Down And Dirty On East Colfax

Colfax Avenue was once referred to by "Playboy" magazine, expert on all things naughty, as "the longest, wickedest street in America." East Colfax, which runs through Aurora, has done little to belie this bad rep throughout the years. It's known for its dive bars and cheap motels (some renting rooms by the hour), and is a haven for purveyors of illegal substances and ladies of easy (and affordable) virtue. The No. 15 bus, which many Aurorans ride to work, is notorious for being the ride from hell, so much so that it even inspired a song by Spiv called "The Dirty 15."
Now in it's 19th year, FallFest is an annual autumn
festival of outdoor activities for children, youth and families in
Original Aurora. It offers a safe and fun environment in which children
and their families can enjoy autumn-themed entertainment, games,
giveaways, art, music and refreshments.
Located in Fletcher Plaza, in front of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Library, 9898 E. Colfax Ave. in NE Aurora.
Brand new song and music video from Denver legend, Leonomadic, featuring photographs all taken on Colfax Avenue by Christopher Rockin'! Many of the businesses and landmarks shown in the video are no longer around, so this has a great nostalgic feel for any true Colfax fan.
