The first day of the Festival of Mountain and Plain closed with the strains of twenty bands and the discord of 2,000 horns. The people of the whole state participated in the opening of the carnival and stood spell-bound while the great pageant passed before them. The sight was beyond expectation. The great event of the afternoon, the parade, was witnessed by 100,000 people of Denver and 50,000 from beyond the city's borders.
