Leap Day freebies, deals and events in Colorado

It takes about 365.25 days for Earth to make one revolution around the sun — so we add an extra day to the calendar every four years.

This article was first published by MileHighontheCheap.com.

No leap of faith necessary here, these are all great Leap Day festivities and discounts. Given Feb. 29 only occurs every four years, now’s the time to take the literal extra day and have a little fun.

Did you know there are roughly 200,000 leap day babies in the U.S.? Better known as “leaplings.”

Bargain hunters can leap around town on Saturday, Feb.  29 to join in some Leap Day fun and savings.

Note: Some of the deals may only be open to “leaplings” as noted. If you qualify, have your photo ID ready and be ready to prove your birthdate.
