Manitou Springs in Colorado took a financial hit when the Waldo Canyon Fire destroyed nearby forests and homes. 75 or more employees were laid off immediately. Manitou is a historical part of the suburbs of Colorado Springs and we want to help the existing shops and restaurants by showing our support this Monday, July 9th, 2012. Come out and enjoy fine food, great company and a little entertainment in the Soda Springs Park with me, Columbine 12:30-1:30 pm. My big bubbles will blow you away!
