DENVER -- When thousands of delegates converge in the Mile City in August, downtown Denver won't look exactly like it does now.

Free movie tickets and passes to Denver's cultural attractions will be given out to homeless people just in time for the Democratic National Convention.

Several groups that help the homeless announced Wednesday that they are making changes during the DNC. But the plan is seen, by some, as a plan to hide the city's homeless, estimated to be roughly 3,800 the summertime.

A DNC advisory committee devoted just to handling the homeless issue has been working on a plan for the past four months with the help of Denver police, the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless, the Denver Rescue Mission and other shelters.

If they are trying to hide them, it's a pretty bad way to do it since there will be thousands of extra people in town visiting those attractions.

From personal experience, there are homeless people EVERYWHERE in Denver during the summer months...

Clark is right, I've been to Denver a few times and was really surprised by the large amount of homeless walking around, far more then NYC. Even in the main tourist spots it was full of homeless.
