Photos, video: One Direction fans stalk band to Boulder, snap pictures with Harry and Niall

Somehow the rumor spread that One Direction is staying at the St. Julien Hotel & Spa in Boulder and Instagram has since been flooded with #onedirection and #chaos along with pictures of crowds of girls.

We don’t know for sure if the British boy band is staying at the hotel, but one lucky Instagram user, asscheeks (her username, not ours) got a picture with Niall Horan. She reacted, rather calmly, with a slew of hashtags, “#Niall #OneDirection #BritishBoys#Boulder #stjulien #celebrities #starstruck#coloradical #casual #nobigdeal”

Others, who happened to be there early caught pictures of the band walking into the hotel, like lidsaypuckett:

Harry Styles just pushed our baby Lux in front of me, elevator eyed us older & hotter directioners & said hi. My life is on a new level. #UNF

The rest of the photos are of unfailingly loyal “Directioners” running through the streets of Boulder, crowding eagerly around tour buses or just standing near buildings and yelling.

Boulder Daily Camera crime reporter Mitchell Byars also recorded some video of these screaming fans nearly getting hit by a bus. Warning: Turn down your speakers.

God speed “Directioners,” and be sure to follow our coverage of the 1D insanity tonight on Twitter at @RVRB as we brave the #chaos at the Pepsi Center.
