Western Welcome Week 2013 was a big hit with a myriad of events held throughout Littleton Aug. 9-18. The big event was the Grand Parade on Festival Day, Aug. 17. Colorado Community Media staff members were out and about with cameras to capture some images, from Dunk-a-Cop to cute kids to our own 125th Anniversary float in the parade, which took second place in the "Business & Professional Float" category. Thank you, Western Welcome Week judges!
