The Denver Police Department (DPD) reminds the public to be vigilant and safe due to the large number of events in close proximity.

DPD said the large events will result in more pedestrians, cyclists and vehicle traffic in the downtown area. DPD said fans should utilize RTD mass transit, consider carpooling or ridesharing and allow for extra time.
