Pueblo, Colorado — Despite the state’s COVID-19 dial moving to the yellow level, organizers of upcoming summer events remain optimistic.
Owned by Tommy Giodone Backyard band, The Pueblo Music Festival, where thousands of people gather every summer.
“It’s off the chart, people want to come out and do something,” Giodone said.
Last year, Bands in the Backyard was canceled due to COVID-19, but this year we aim to bring rap and the biggest star in the country to Pueblo.
“With everything the backyard band has to offer, I think it will heal people who you don’t believe in,” Giodone explained.
Most recently, a sharp increase in the COVID-19 case rate in Pueblo County has forced the county to return to yellow levels... Pueblo Mayor Nick Gladisar told FOX21 that the city knew this was possible.
“There was a risk of increased infection rates when we increased capacity,” said Mayor Gladizer. “So we’ve seen it, but this reminds us to be careful.”
Although the number of cases has increased slightly, Pueblo continues its vaccination efforts.
“I’m confident that this summer will be better. If everyone is vaccinated, it can be better,” added Mayor Gladiza.
tickets Backyard bands are still on sale, so Giodone said he was ready to follow any changes in the guidelines.
“Our event was in July and we know the dial was moved, but now everyone is vaccinated,” said Giodone. “If you don’t want to go, if you feel unsafe, you have a choice. Don’t go.”
