Free Great Pumpkin Harvest Festival in Denver on October 6-7
Bring the family out to the wonderful free Great Pumpkin Harvest Festival in Denver on October 6-7, 2012 at Denver’s Four Mile Historic Park, on the banks of Cherry Creek, just four miles from downtown Denver. There will be a very exciting county fair area where you can rummage through our costume bank and take an ‘old-timey’ photo in front of the Four Mile House, enter a pie eating contest or win something yummy in an old-fashioned cake walk. Of course, all the favorites are back too! Find the perfect pumpkin in the patch, create your very own scarecrow, listen and dance to old time music, play historic games or make a historic craft. There will be plenty of food available including homemade caramel apples and other goodies. Be sure to visit the mountain men and Native American encampment, take a horse-drawn ride and tour Four Mile House, Denver’s oldest standing structure, as the Booth family prepares for the harvest.
Four Mile Historic Park is a 12 acre oasis featuring Denver’s oldest standing structure, pioneer exhibits, special events for all ages, and guided tours that transport visitors to Colorado’s frontier past.
