The Wild About Colorado art festival is rolling through Breckenridge this weekend at the Carter Park Pavilion.

Because the event is being sponsored by Continental Divide Land Trust, a nonprofit land conservation group in Summit County, people will meet up at 9 a.m. today at the pavilion to take part in a river cleanup day, planned in partnership with the town and the Ocean Conservancy. Trash bags will be provided.

Also, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. today at the pavilion at 300 S. High St., the work of 14 artists from Summit County and the surrounding area will be on display and for sale.

The group is additionally planning a reception at the Arts Alive Gallery, a co-op gallery managed by the Summit County Arts Council, on Aug. 12, in Breckenridge. During the reception, people may enjoy hors d'oeuvres and cocktails while browsing pieces painted by the Wild About Colorado artists.
