Over 400 people attended Arma Dei Academy's Colorado Thanksgiving event at the Highlands Ranch Mansion.
Arma Dei Academy is a classical, Christian school in Highlands Ranch. Students in kindergarten through eighth grade dressed as prominent people from Colorado's history and re-enacted scenes in different rooms of the mansion.
Upstairs was a flashback to Colorado's early industries. One student dressed as a nurse carrying for her patient with tuberculosis. Another student was President Theodore Roosevelt ready to embark on his next hunting expedition. Downstairs was a look into Denver's development. Students dressed as famous families and individuals, including Molly Brown, Titanic survivor, and human-rights activist.
Family and friends were invited to explore the mansion and watch the different plays. The event ended with square dancing in the ballroom.
