Why did 500 women turn Cheyenne Mountain Resort into an ocean of red and purple on July 13? Because they could. The same for why the Colorado Red Hat A'Faire had Christmas trees and Santa in July. Because they could. The high-spirited state Red Hat Society Queens Council was celebrating an 11th anniversary, a salute to an international group of over-50 women that meets with just one purpose: to be silly, just enjoy life, celebrate female friendships and kick middle age in its backside. All the while they wear red hats and purple outfits - and sometimes sip red and purple cocktails. It started with a simple tea party in Florida in 1998 and there are now more than 40,000 chapters strong worldwide. Those who aspire to royalty can proclaim themselves queens and start their own chapters.
