So, what are you doing to celebrate Easter tomorrow in Colorado? If you have no plans, we highly suggest waking up before the crack of dawn and heading to Red Rocks Amphitheater for their Easter Sunrise Service. This service is a Colorado tradition regardless of your denomination! Thousands of people from all over the Front Range area, will make their way into Morrison during the wee hours of Easter to gather and celebrate. Because of this service's special surroundings, many people find it to be a magical experience, which brings them back year after year.
At the Red Rocks Sunrise Easter Service, you will see a hugely diverse community of people gathering to celebrate everything they are grateful for, praying for their loved ones, and asking for guidance. Whatever your beliefs or reasonings, if you really want to experience something special and truly unique to Colorado, this service should not be missed. Here is everything you need to know about Red Rocks Easter Sunrise Service.
The service starts promptly at 6:00 am, which for some means getting in their cars hours early in order to compete with, oh yes, event traffic. The doors open to Red Rocks at 4:30 am, and you better belief that the best seats will fill up shortly after that. The Red Rocks Sunrise Service is presented by the Colorado Council of Churches and is an interdenominational mass. This year will be the last service given by Rev. Jim Ryan, executive director of the Colorado Council of Churches. Attendees will also enjoy the vocal and musical talents of the Women of Note from St. Luke's United Methodist Church in Highlands Ranch.
Red Rocks Sunrise Service is a unique holiday experience that will draw huge crowds, so please try to remember this is a day of new beginnings and be prepared for the sheer masses. With that being said, it is always possible that the event center will fill to capacity, since it is free, so plan to arrive as early as you can to ensure entrance. We suggest you wear warm clothes, pack a blanket, bring a thermos of your favorite coffee, and have a light snack on hand to munch on while waiting in traffic on your way out of Morrison afterwards.Please also remember to bring nonperishable food goods to donate to the COMPA Food Bank Ministry!
