COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4) – Fireworks will light up the skies in Colorado Springs on New Year’s Eve as the Pikes Peak AdAmAn Club makes security adjustments to ensure a long tradition continues despite the pandemic.
« The club has been climbing Pikes Peak every year since 1922, » said Dan Stuart, President of the AdAmAn Club.
The AdAmAn Club adds one person to the group every year, hence the name. Every year they hike Pikes Peak, wear fireworks to start a beautiful show, and welcome the New Year for everyone to see below.
« This has happened every year for almost 100 years, » explained Stuart. « We thought it was really important to keep the tradition going, even if it’s a little more challenging. ”
The club has made adjustments, e.g.. B.. limiting the number of hikers who hike in two distant groups rather than one. All hikers have tested negative for COVID-19 and instead of climbing the summit in two days, they are doing it in one.
« It will be a more difficult hike because it all takes place in a day and conditions become difficult, » said Stuart. “They always are. It had some snow last night which will be fun. ”
As soon as you reach the top, fireworks will light up the sky at 9 p.m.. m. in honor of the 150. Birthday of the city of Colorado Springs. Then a show at midnight to ring in the new year. It’s a traditional ascent that has even greater significance this year.
“A lot of people suffer, it was a very difficult year. And we thought, after talking about it, that the message we were bringing was ‘Happy New Year,’ ”said Stuart. « And everyone needs hope for the new year and that’s what we’re trying to bring. ”
