420 2019 at Myxed Up Creations was an epic day filled with amazing moments
Myxed Up 420 2019 was an epic one indeed, and you couldn't possibly have ever asked for any better circumstances for this one. The weather was sunny and warm, and spring was in step. And this year, Myxed Up Nation's favorite holiday fell on a Saturday! It was the perfect temperature on the perfect day. It was every sunshine loving stoners dream come true! A feeling of positivity and energy filled the air.
The year 2019 was the 6th April 20th (4/20) with fully recreational cannabis in Colorado, and now there are 10 states (and Washington DC) with recreational cannabis laws already in the books. For some reason there was this overwhelming feeling that the 4/20 holiday has officially moved from a counterculture phenomenon to the mainstream, peeling back a new layer of social acceptance. Welcome to Colorado where you wouldn't be at all surprised if the person sitting next to you at church on Easter Sunday smelled like weed from their 4/20 party the night before.
The day started out quickly at the brand new Myxed Up Creations location in Colorado Springs and Aurora as the sidewalk sales got the vibe right early. Dabbin Dan was slanging glass with a frenzy and deals were being made left and right! Between the line out the door of the dispensary next door and the crowded sidewalk sale, the scene was a party without a doubt. Within minutes of officially opening at 10 o'clock the legendary grab bags were already almost sold out.
One of the highlights of this year's 4/20 was, without a doubt, our stores 420 Zong raffle. We called the winners of each stores Zong raffle winners first thing in the morning on Saturday, and I think it's safe to say we made it a very memorable 4/20 for 4 very lucky individuals.
One of the pillars of the cannabis community are the glass blowers that make the art that we all love so much. The unique hand blown glass made by local artists are an important part of any thriving scene. As often as we can, we try our best to highlight these amazing artists to draw attention to their impressive skill set. One of the best ways we can do that is to showcase these artists at work at our 4/20 and More20 events. Once again we would like to thank these guys for coming down and spending their 420 with us!

At 3:00pm we had the motherload of grub arrive to satisfy all of our munchies! Now we had a chance to fill our bellies with some delicious food. By now the music was pumping at all of our stores! Yes, now it was a party! And with only an hour until 4:20pm, the smoke session of the year, it officially felt like the 4/20 vibe was right on point!
As with other recent editions of Myxed Up 420, one of the main highlights of the day was the music. Once again we had musicians with a wide range of musical styles come down to the shops and share their talents with all of the Myxed Up Fam! It's always a great honor to have these local acts as our guests to be such an integral part of this amazing celebration. We would like to thank the following artists for lending us their talent.

The icing on the cake for every Myxed Up 420 in recent memory has always been the raffle. Up for grabs this were were three levels of Phill's Bills winners. $250 for first, $100 for second, and a $50 spot for third. We also had the pleasure of dishing out three more prizes at each location, with Dab Box and Dab Box Kings from Snowcloudz, as well as a High5 E-nail! Seeing the smiles on the winners faces makes it a highlight that is hard to top.
After the exciting conclusion of the raffle we tried to make sure that no one walked away empty handed, as we gave away a boatload of t-shirts to anyone and everyone that stuck it out to the end. And with that, another amazing 420 was in the books. Finally, it was time to kick off our shoes and enjoy 4/20 as a participant!
Thank you again to all of the Myxed Up Fam that came out to make this 4/20 another epic excursion! You are the people that truly make this possible each and every year! The countdown to 4/20 2020 is on!
