Surprisingly there were about a dozen Trump supporters who I thought were antagonistic but thankfully nothing happened. The police had a good present but were respectful with their distance. This is my third time to Denver this year and if memory serves me correctly I have seen a protest each trip. The locals are passionate and very vocal. The rest of my time was spent just walking around the cities, drinking beer and eating. Brewery visits where limited this time around, only three new ones this trip.

I have been staying at the Renaissance in Downtown and have already visited the closest breweries so much more walking is required now to see some new places. All around a good selection of breweries with Ratio being the best of the three in my opinion. I love fireworks and was surprised to hear that Denver puts on a show in Civic Center Park on July 3rd. After a long day of drinking and walking I eventually made my way to the park for the show.

Really cool display that was loud with lots of color. With that in mind my return flight on July 4th would get me back at a reasonable hour in the afternoon. My original thought was to arrive at IAD and head downtown before the fireworks start around 9pm. It was a great idea but in the end I just went home when I got back into town.

It was a really long weekend filled with a ton of activities so by the time I landed all I wanted to do was go home and sleep. What sealed my decision was I was flying to Birmingham the following day. I was staying the rest of the week to train a new hire so felt no need to push myself to make it to DC.

The fireworks in Denver fulfilled my itch for fireworks this season. Another great time in Denver thanks to the four day Jul 4th weekend. As is usually my motive I drank some great beer and ate till I was full each day. This is a city that always has something going on and never leaves me bored. Still working on getting a new job here in Portland so that could screw up my plans Veterans Day weekend but oh well.

I would rather plan all this out then find airline tickets are to expensive or the show is sold out. The Helsinki Conference was set for 2 October, at which the foreign ministers would be informed of the results of the Two-plus-Four talks. At the beginning of July, the governments of both German states decided on the schedule: After a heated debate, the President of the Volkskammer, Sabine Bergmann-Pohl , announced the results at 2: In the matter Nr.

There were no invalid votes. This is a historic event. Ladies and Gentlemen, I believe that we have not made an easy decision, but today we have acted within our responsibilities of the voting rights of the citizens of the GDR.

I thank everybody that this result was made possible by a consensus across party lines. The Parliament has no more and no less decided on the downfall of the German Democratic Republic as of 3 October ". Instead of 3 October, the National Reunification should be celebrated on the first Sunday of October. This suggestion received a lot of criticism from many sides, amongst them from Federal President Horst Köhler as well as the President of the Bundestag , Wolfgang Thierse.

The demand worried a part of the population because of discontent for increased working hours would be seen as a provocation and devaluing the national holiday. In addition, fixing the Unity Day on the first Sunday of October would have meant that it would sometimes fall on 7 October, which happens to have been the national day of East Germany; this date would thus have been seen as commemorating the division of Germany rather than the reunification.

The idea was dropped after a short but angry debate. The Day of German Unity is celebrated each year with a ceremonial act and a citizens' festival Bürgerfest. The celebrations are hosted by a major city, usually the state capital, in the German state presiding over the Bundesrat in the respective year a sequence determined by the Königstein Agreement [13].

Juni and around the Brandenburg Gate. State capitals and also other cities often have additional festivities. Furthermore, the Oktoberfest beer festival in Munich , which traditionally runs until the first Sunday in October, now runs until 3 October, if the Sunday in question falls on the first or second day of October.

The celebrations in the host city always includes a festival and fireworks show. The Zipfelbund are the four communities at the cardinal compass points [14] of Germany: Together, they always participate in the respective annual celebration to represent the modern borders of Germany.
