COMMERCE CITY CO (December 10 2007) – The Colorado Rapids made it a happy holiday season for local kids by participating in the annual Derby Winter Festival last Friday December 7 at the Derby Merchant Square in Commerce City.
Rapids players Herculez Gomez and Ugo Ihemelu were on-hand to sign autographs and the Rapids organization joined many Commerce City businesses to participate by decorating Christmas trees which were illuminated during the event judged and finally donated to families in need throughout Commerce City.
Gomez and Ihemelu also served as judges for the tree decorating contest as well.
The Derby Winter Festival featured students from Adams County School District 14 and 27J caroling and competing in an art contest as well as a special visit and free photos with Santa hot cider cookies and sopapillas.
