DENVER (CBS4) – The Denver County Fair is dropping its marijuana exhibit to focus on cats.
Last year’s Pot Pavilion was “perfect for 2014, to acknowledge the first year of legal recreational marijuana in Denver,” said the fair’s fair co-owner and Creative Director, Tracy Weil.
However, controversy emerged when 100 people claimed to have been served pot-infused chocolate unknowingly.
This year, the Kitten Pavilion will take over with cat shows, cat-centric vendors, and celebrity cat Lil BUB, who has a special story.
There will be 250 show cats on display Saturday and Sunday of the fair and a kitten adopt-a-thon will take place Friday. Coloradans can even bring their cats to compete in the Blue Ribbon Fun Cat Show with categories like “fluffiest” and “grumpiest.”
The Kitten Pavilion opens a month after CatCon debuted in Los Angeles, an event “like Comic Con but for cat people.”
The Denver County Fair begins July 31 and lasts through August 2 at the National Western Complex.
