Colorado sees 130 percent the national average rate of death due to skin cancer, so melanoma prevention is a particularly important issue in these parts. Bring your family and watch from a picnic blanket or lawn chair as professional polo players duke it out at the Colorado Melanoma Foundation's second annual Mallets for Melanoma event. Food trucks provide nourishment throughout the day, and the tournament ends with a show from The Platte River Pickers bluegrass band. Proceeds benefit melanoma research, awareness, education and advocacy in Colorado. Sat 2-9 p.m.
