Last year we made it to our first Easter Sunrise Service at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre. It was a wonderful experience. We had to wake up quite early. It is best to be at Red Rocks by at least 5:00 am. A lot of people attend this celebration. The service starts at 6:00 am but in order to get a great seat in the back of the amphitheatre you must get there early. We didn’t get a seat in the back but instead sat pretty close to the stage. I didn’t mind where we sat because the whole experience was beautiful. Some helpful tips if you are planning on attending: the earlier the better….door time is 4:30 am but people are up and ready to get those prime seats at the top of the amphitheatre. The top seats are where you actually get to see the sunrise above the red rocks. Dress warmly. It is chilly in the early am. I would wear layers. I would also suggest bringing a light blanket to cover your legs. If you think about it, a hot beverage is a good idea. Maybe coffee or hot chocolate. Bring a backpack or tote bag to carry items. Keep in mind that it is a steep climb up to the amphitheatre. Admittance and parking are free. One more thing……don’t forget your camera! You can’t beat the views from Red Rocks. I have included some of my Easter pictures from last year. Hope to see you there this year!
