Mayor Encourages Broncos Fans To Wear Orange, Attend Rally
DENVER (CBS4)– Denver Broncos fans, get ready for another day set aside to show your true colors.
Denver Mayor Michael Hancock has declared Jan. 13 as “Orange Friday” once again. He’s encouraging everyone to wear Broncos orange at the end of the week, the day before they take on the New England Patriots in Boston.
There will also be a “Broncos Boulevard” Spirit Rally on Friday from 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m., with Hancock rallying Denver fans along with the Denver Broncos Cheerleaders, the Stampede drumline and Miles the Mascot.
It will take place at Bannock Street between Colfax Avenue and 14th Avenue. Bannock will unofficially be renamed Broncos Boulevard on Friday, and fans will be provided with chalk to decorate the street with Broncos well wishes and art.
Hancock also discussed on Thursday how the city is showing its support for the home team.
Thousands of parking meters on the city streets of Denver will display a “Go Broncos” message when drivers pay for parking. There are 6,000 smart parking meters that will display the message.
The City and County Building and the DIA sign on Pena Boulevard will have orange and blue lights until game day, as well as several large signs along 14th Street. The train that shuttles passengers between terminals at the airport will be updated with a message from John Elway.
Hancock also plans on another game wager, this time with Boston’s Mayor Tom Merino.
