Denver has finally released a designated parade route to be used by activists during the Democratic National Convention in August, but the charted course has a dead end. Literally.
On Thursday, per a binding legal agreement with the American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado, the city disclosed a map of the route sans a definitive end point—a detail the Denver mayor’s office states is still being planned.
The route begins at Civic Center Park, near the State Capitol, and trails down Colfax Avenue to Speer Boulevard until reaching Larimer Street, where it abruptly halts several blocks short of the convention site at the Pepsi Center.
Take a look:
The city states that an end to the route will be within “walking distance” of the planned demonstration zone (highlighted in red) across from the Pepsi Center, but the exact location has not been disclosed and there is no clear indication of when it will be.
Almost a month ago the the city of St. Paul released a complete planned parade route for the Republican National Convention taking place in September, with both a start point and an end point.
Parades on the Denver route will only be permitted between 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. during the convention, and the city has yet to form a schedule.
