Why does Denver have Cows?
Raising Moo-la is the primary purpose for having the CowParade. The goal is to raise $500,000 to benefit The Children's Museum of Denver, Cherry Creek Arts Festival, The Denver Zoo, and the Eagle Fund of the Denver foundation.
Can I buy a Cow?
Yes, the moos-terpieces will be sold at auction to be held at the National Western Stock Show Stadium on November 10, 2006 and online November 11, 2006. Sales are open to the public. You may come meet the artist and kick up your heels to live music and bid on your very own cow.
