GREELEY, Colo. -- Donald Trump is making back-to-back campaign stops as he visits Colorado for the sixth time this weekend.

Trump's campaign confirmed Friday evening he will be speaking in Greeley at the Bank of Colorado Arena at the University of Northern Colorado (UNC) at 4 p.m., but doors will open to the public at starting at 1 p.m. You can get tickets for the event here

The announcement comes a day after Trump's campaign said he would be holding a rally in Golden on Saturday.

Officials at UNC are already preparing for the GOP candidate's visit. 

"The Sunday event is likely to draw a significant number of people to campus, which will temporarily affect nearby parking and may change access routes," a UNC official said in a press release. Information about traffic will be made available on the UNC website

Trump fighting to get the Colorado vote

Trump's campaign has embarked on a last-minute blitz of classic swing states and other states that have suddenly become toss-ups ahead of the polarizing Nov. 8 General Election.

Republican vice presidential candidate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, was in Colorado Springs on Wednesday. Donald Trump's son, Eric Trump, made four stops in Colorado Thursday -- three in Colorado Springs and one in Lakewood.

The Trump campaign has campaigned extensively in Colorado in the past two months as it continues to believe it has a chance to win the state, which is a classic “purple state” that votes Democrat and Republican fairly equally.

This is Trump's sixth campaign visit to the Centennial State since July 1.
