Local Fall Festivities

It’s that time of year again when the leaves are changing colors and the winds start getting uncomfortably cold. Colorado is known for its colorful autumns, with fiery red and golden patches of aspen in the mountains. But as amazing as those nice mountain views are, it’s pretty far away from those of us who reside in the cities (though it’s probably worth a weekend trip anyways).

  Luckily, you can still enjoy the beauty of nature at your local botanical gardens. Not only do they have seasonal plants available for your viewing pleasure, the Chatfield Farms in Littleton has a Corn Maze with plenty of family events—such as hayrides and games—during the day, and even has an After Dark Corn Maze During for the brave. And for the completely fearless, there is a Dead Zone Scream Park available as well. Please visit their website at https://www.botanicgardens.org/events/special-events/corn-maze for more information.   Don’t wait too long though. These events are only going until October 29, 2017.
