1. Cinco de Mayo cruising on Federal Boulevard.
Who: Gearheads and people-watchers alike.
What: Cruising down Federal Boulevard, a Denver tradition, has gotten the Denver Police Department in a hissy in recent years, for causing traffic problems and inspiring people to "loiter" -- and tickets have been handed out in the past. Still, the event is great for people-watching and spotting classic cars, as well as enjoying an old neighborhood tradition. And it's definitely legal to watch.
Where: Federal Boulevard.
When: Saturday, May 5.
How much: Since it's not a sanctioned event, there's no fee. Just park yourself somewhere along Federal and check out the cars and characters.
