As Summer starts winding down, we’re heading into my favorite time of the year…fall! I love the cooler temperatures, the leaves changing, the crisp morning air and I usually think of Oktoberfest as the kickoff to fall. This weekend there are plenty of Oktoberfest celebrations in Colorado starting with the 41st Oktoberfest Denver in the ballpark district downtown. Oktoberfest kicks off tonight (9/17) and is every Friday, Saturday and Sunday through September 26th. It’s now located in the ballpark district on Larimer Street, between 20th and 22nd Streets. There will be plenty of polka music for dancing along with cold beer and great food.
There are other Oktoberfests that are taking place this weekend and two of my favorites are the Breckenridge Oktoberfest and the Vail Oktoberfest in Vail Village. It’s a great excuse to get out of town to do the chicken dance and to enjoy the beautiful fall foliage!
Loving life in Colorado!
