Colorado Prepares For Hippie Invasion By The "Rainbow Family"
Somewhere between 20000 and 60000 smelly, tree-hugging, birkenstock-wearing, granola-eating hippies, excluding those already in Boulder of course, are expected to convene near Steamboat Springs this July (video):
STEAMBOAT SPRINGS - Routt County is bracing for 20,000 to 60,000 members of the "Rainbow Family."Panhandling and drug use? Oh, there's a shocker!
The Rainbow Family, often described as hippies, is expected to converge on a site on national forest land for the group's weeklong annual gathering in July.
Members of the group turn up every year in Boulder where some residents consider them to be a nuisance. They are often accused of panhandling, drug use and sometimes violent attacks which has officials worried.
