For owners of Minis, vintage and new alike, all roads lead to Denver, Colorado. Mini USA is holding a Mini festival weekend in the Mile-High City from August 13-15, and is organizing caravans to Denver that will originate in five U.S. cities: Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco.

Mini Takes the States 2010, as the rally and festival are called, will pass through a total of 19 states, covering more than 8,000 miles of road. More than 10,000 enthusiasts are expected to participate, either gathering in one of the kickoff cities, joining one of the caravans en route or meeting up at one of the many designated stopping points across the country.
