Dog of the Month

Downtown Dog
of the Month

Meet Jackson Spec, an adorable 10 year old Beagle who is brand new to Louisville. Jackson loves his new home, especially his walks on on the Coal Creek Trail and meeting all his fellow Downtown dogs at Community Park. You won’t find Jackson doing much swimming at the Dog Park, but you can be sure he won't miss a smell. Make sure to say hi if you see Jackson and owner Sarah!

“Our yearly love fest in Louisville CO went off in spectacular form tonight...

...this is why we do what we do.” So says MarchFourth’s June 17 Facebook post. Summer 2016 started with a parade down Main street featuring the always amazing M4 and supported by several hundred of their closest friends. What a gas. Hot Buttered Rum got their groove going on a beautiful summer night June 24. In our humble opinion, this world can’t go wrong with a few more love fests. See all you flower children soon.
