DENVER (KDVR) — Supporters of both President-elect Joe Biden and President Donald Trump gathered in central Denver on Saturday.
On Saturday morning, Biden supporters celebrated in front of the Colorado Capitol. Drivers honked their horns as they drove down Lincoln Street.
Later, Trump supporters arrived at the Capitol.
Colorado State Patrol troopers kept the two crowds separated.
Hundreds of Biden supporters took over an intersection south of the Capitol building, waving flags, cheering and singing.
“The energy is amazing, I feel very united. There’s so much unity and love from everyone,” said Angelica Morales, a Denver resident.
In front of the statehouse, a smaller group of President Trump supporters held a demonstration. Denver Police Officers formed a line between the two groups at one point.
“I came out to ensure the electoral integrity of our system,” said Steve McLinden, a supporter of President Trump, “it’s certainly possible that Mr. Biden has won. If that’s the eventuality then obviously we will accept that.”
Alena Amundson brought her family out to participate in the celebration.
“We wanted to show the kids what democracy looks like and this is what happens when all the people come out and vote, overwhelmingly. I think it’s the right direction for our country and we wanted to share that with our children.”
Biden supporters also gathered at a “Voters Decide” event in Cheesman Park, where they listened to speeches and danced.
A crowd gathered outside Stoney’s on Lincoln to hear President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris speak.
