The Gazette is throwing a big party - and you're invited. We're celebrating our annual Best of the Springs magazine, which publishes Sunday.

The Best of the Springs launch party just started and there's already a big crowd. Come to Pikes Peak Center any time before 8 p.m. and celebrate with us. 

The party is free, but there is a suggested $10 donation to the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region, 2016 gold winner for best nonprofit - a cause which goes paw in paw with our "Top Dogs" magazine theme. This year's winners will be unveiled on gazette.com and at the party at 7 p.m.

- 2017 Best of the Springs winners.

There will be food and drink from Colorado Springs favorites including Bird Dog BBQ, Fujiyama and 503W. Bronco Billy's saloon will host games and prizes. You may be compelled to bring your dancing shoes for local band WireWood Station, performing in Studio Bee. Always wanted to have your photo taken on the red carpet? Mike's Camera will be shooting keepsake photos.

Some exciting new diversions: Christie Coker, master Tarot reader, will be providing readings, and - in case you feel the need to wind down during the festivities - Shiatsu and neck massages will be given by both VillaSport Athletic Club and Camino Massage Therapy.

Although the Best of the Springs 2017 magazine doesn't officially publish until Sunday, copies of the much-anticipated annual guide to the best of the Pikes Peak region will be available at the party. We'll also announce the winners in all six categories - Arts & Entertainment, City Life, Dining, Family & Health, Shopping and Sports & Recreation. So if you're eager to know who took top honors, come celebrate with us and find out.

The Gazette's Best of the Springs magazine reports readers' votes for everything from best art class to yoga teacher, top pediatric practice to wine list, best trail for beginners and downtown lunch. It's a handy place to go if you need a quick referral to ... just about anything. The 156-page magazine also includes some expert advice from our in-house authorities in every category.

We hope to see you there! Let us know you're coming by emailing rsvp@gazette.com
