Estimated 125,000 Turn Out For Two-Day 4/20 Rally In Civic Center

“We believe in the language we put forward and that adults who consume cannabis deserve the same freedoms to congregate and socialize as those who consume alcohol,” Mr. Tvert said. “We were persuaded, however, by members of the political and business communities, who requested participation in this process. We look forward to working with them to find a solution amenable to all parties.”

COLORADO: As the last night of the annual 4/20 rally in Denver’s Civic Center park comes to a close Sunday, crowds remain large and diverse.

Rally founder Miguel Lopez said more people showed up to the rally Sunday than Saturday.

“There’s still, surprisingly, a large number of people here,” Lopez said around 6:30 p.m.

The event, which began Saturday and runs through Sunday night, features a full lineup of music, including a concert by rapper Rick Ross at 4:20 p.m. Sunday. Gates are open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. for the free public event, with a ticketed after-party running 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. at the McNichols building.

Between Saturday and Sunday night, Lopez estimated about 125,000 filled the park to browse marijuana-themed merchandise and discuss the pot industry.
