The Colacci family has lived and worked in Boulder County since the early 1900s. Mike and Mary Colacci started the Blue Parrot Restaurant in 1919 in Louisville serving coal miners and local residents. Mike maintained it until his death in 1970. Their legacy continues through five generations and 84 years of staying in business. In addition to running several businesses in the area, family members have, and continue to volunteer to serve, their communities in many ways.
