11 Ways to Celebrate Fall In Colorado

For many Americans fall is the favorite season. October is a beautiful month all over the country. But for many locals, fall in Colorado is spectacular. Aspen leaves turn to shimmering gold. Mountain vistas are breathtaking. The temperature generally stays in the mid ‘60’s. And there’s plenty of sunshine. You won’t want to miss local events that celebrate the best parts of the season. Weekends might bring football games, brew fests, off road trips, and climbing of peaks. Or scenic hikes, pumpkin patch visits, haunted houses, food festivals, and corn mazes. As this unknown author writes, “Just before the death of flowers, and before they are buried in snow, there comes a festival season when nature is all aglow.”

For newcomers to the area, read up on the 24th annual 2018 Emma Crawford Coffin Races and Festival. This year, the annual event will be held on October 27th, (12:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m.). Downtown Manitou Springs residents and visitors alike celebrate the historical folklore of Emma Crawford with this unique, enjoyable parade. The coffin race that follows is a community favorite that is distinctly Colorado. (http://www.emmacrawfordfestival.com/)
