in The Colorado Blog by

What is more beautiful than Colorado in the Fall? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. But of you’re burned out from looking at all those gorgeous views here’s a list of great events happening this weekend that can get you back into the fall spirit. Kick off your October with fun-filled fall activities, no pumpkin spiced lattes required.

 

Want PUMPKINS

Check out the Pumpkin Harvest Festival at Four Mile Historic Park. You’ll find scarecrows, historic games, music and pumpkins of course. Check it out both Saturday and Sunday for some good old October fun.

 

Want APPLES

If you’re around Cedaredge this weekend there will be over 150 vendors celebrating that juicy, crisp taste we’ve been waiting all year for. Fresh apple season, with music art, plenty of food and a 5k run.

 

Want ELK

It’s the 18th annual Elk Fest in Estes Park this weekend. Listen and enjoy the sounds of nature while checking out elk-related activities for the kids, a beer garden for the adults and a 5k run for everyone. Just remember; respect the wildlife.

 

Want CORN?

The Denver Botanic Gardens features an eight acre corn maze at the Chatfield Farms. Enjoy all the corn maze fun with the classic snacks; funnel cakes, hot dogs, freshly squeezed lemonade and kettle corn, and lots of fun for the kids. Check it out all through October.

 

Want SCARES

13th floor is back and ready to scare your pants off. Denver’s largest haunted house will be open through November 12th in case you want to get scared nearly to Thanksgiving.

 

Want CIDER?

Lakewood Heritage Center’s Cider Days will feature two full days of apple filled fun. Apple pressing, apple cider by the glass or gallon, and an apple bake-off along with some live music and local vendors.

 

Want BEER

The last weekend of Oktoberfest is here and this will be your last chance to enjoy all the German attractions in the Mile High City. Head over to the Ballpark District for a family-friendly fest with bratwurst, keg bowling, dogs and of course beer.
