99th Fruita Fall Festival 2013
This is one of the festivals I can’t wait for EVERY year! Why? Because there’s literally something for EVERYONE!
Some of my favorite events at this festival include:
- Bed Races 9a Saturday on Aspen Ave.
- This hilarious event is definitely something to bring the WHOLE family to see! The entry I remember the MOST from past years was the Fruita PD dressed as pigs with little snouts on running down the street . . .
- Baking & Canning Contest 10a Saturday at Rib City Grill
- Normally I’d be one of your JUDGES but this year I’m COMPETING, and I’m gonna give you a run for that $100 Grand Prize!
- Youth Pet & Talent Show 1p Saturday on the Pavilion Stage in front of the Civic Center on Aspen
- By far one of the BEST events in the Grand Valley! You’ll see some of the most talented kids (& their pets) on the Western Slope. This is where I first saw Lainey’s May, the gals that’ve won our annual Country Showdown for the past two years!
