Happy October! No month puts you into the fall mindset like this one! There is so much to look forward to and so many activities and events to attend! Looking forward to getting out and watching the colors changing, Halloween costume shopping and pumpkin carving? Already got those on your agenda and searching for even more ways to embrace October? Look no further because we’ve got suggestions you will just fall in love with!


1) Harvest Farm Fall Festival and Corn Maze

If you’re looking for pumpkins to adorn your Halloween themed home with, head out to the Harvest Farm Fall Festival and Corn Maze this Friday! There’s an array of activities for people of all ages to enjoy and love. At the festival, there will be a ten-acre corn maze, corn cannons, yard games, food trucks, a natural play area, a petting zoo, and even pig races! The 13th Annual festival promises endless fall fun for attendees, and we hear there will even be hay-rides throughout the course of the day.

2)  Quaking Aspen Tree Hike

You’ve driven past the changing trees so many times, maybe snapped a photo or two, but have you ever taken the time to check out Aspen trees up close and personally? This Saturday in Nederland, there will be a volunteer-lead hike through Mud Lake Open Space that will focus specifically on the beauty, history, and importance of the Aspen tree. This easy 1.5 mile hike will get you outdoors, embracing that beautiful Colorado nature, and perhaps you’ll even be lucky enough to see some wildlife! No need to sign up or get tickets, because this activity is free! Learn more about the hike and find more information here.


3)  Retail Therapy at Handmade in Colorado Expo

You’ve worked hard this week and deserve a little retail therapy at the Handmade in Colorado Expo right here on Pearl! Not only is this a great shopping opportunity, but it’s a way to support local Colorado craftsmen and businesses. There will be 120 vendors there and and endless array of items to take home!
