Your Colorado Weekend Planner
One more weekend to get out and do some fun stuff before fall gets here and we complain about it being too cold. Or is that just me? I have a few things I bet you would have a ball checking out.
Longs Peak Scottish/Irish Festival - Estes Park
Get your Braveheart on this weekend in Estes Park. In addition to the bagpipes and the kilt wearers, you will find a whole host of things to do and see.Highland dancing, jousting, Celtic music and post throwing are just a few of the things you can expect from this party!
Denver Chalk Art Festival - Denver
Chalk artists everywhere will love checking this one out. My favorite chalk artists are the ones who can make it look like the street is gone and stuff is coming up from underneath. Chalk art has really become one impressive art form. Head to Larimer Square to find the Piaaza Delarte (plaza of art).
Pork And Hops Challenge - Grand Junction
Around here we know what this is. Music from Kip Winger, The Eagles tribute band The Boys of Summer and Grammy winners Restless Heart are your musical guests. Great food, great beer and awesome times with friends are what you can look forward to in Grand Junction this weekend.
Imagine yourself touring our beautiful state with a whole cadre of others in a Jeep. Colorado Jeep tours offer a variety of tours checking out all kinds of sights. Maybe it will be along the Royal Gorge or Red Canyon Park, or how about touring old mining camps? This sounds like a lot of fun.
Red Rocks Amphitheater - Morrison
No summer can be complete without a show at Red Rocks. This weekend, STS9 brings their eclectic stylings of electronic music to the stage. Gorillaz and Nickelback are also on the schedule in the coming week.
With very little summer remaining, this could be the perfect weekend for you to get away and relax before we start talking about winter things to do, so get out there!
