OLD COLORADO CITY - Preps are underway for Territory Days, and in just hours, Colorado Avenue will be packed with thousands of people.
However, one part of the festivities will look a little different this year.
Bancroft Park is closed, following a homeless camp fire in July.
City leaders, however, have decided to renovate the area, with a $500,00 price tag. It is expected to be completed later this summer, according to Richard Skorman, Colorado Springs City Council President.
Territory Days kicks off Saturday morning starting at 10 a.m. and will continue throughout Memorial Day weekend.
