Dozens camp out for wedding, event permits at prime Denver spots

DENVER - Couples have been camping out since Wednesday in front of a Denver city building to make sure they get their dream wedding spot.

Friday is the first day the Denver Parks and Recreation department will accept applications for 2014 permits for weddings, festivals and other events.

According to the Denver Post, couples say their choice of city property is important for sentimental reasons, but also desirable because the city charges much less for a permit than private establishments cost to rent.

Some of the places issuing permits on November 1 include the City Park Bandshell and the boathouse at Washington Park. Fees for most venues start at $260.
