As I posted previously, Labor Day weekend is traditionally also the Taste of Colorado and this year was no exception. The food booths, the crafts, the free samples from some, the rides, the games, and the heat- my god, the heat! But it’s all fun and it’s HUGE!
Downtown Denver held another successful Taste of Colorado this year, and it was yummy fun and if you didn’t find the shaded grassy areas, you missed out! The bands were amazing too! We got to sit in the grass, eat our treats, and listen to some amazing music. From Country, Classic Rock, to Rocking Pop, there was music all over the festival, free samples, and tasty eats you could purchase and thanks to Colorado Kids, my family had $50 worth of free tickets too and not one ticket was left over. Foods stalls ranged from everything to anything you could imagine even fondue!
The traditional fare was there- sno-cones, funnel cakes, popcorn, and sweet corn – yum! But then cuisine you could only imagine- there was Greek food, Indian food, Vietnamese food truck, Chinese, Mexican, and man, the food options just went on and on. You could do a “taste” for 3 tix at most booths or go for bigger dishes for 8, all the way up to 11 and 12. Or, a giant turkey leg for 15- woh! There were perfect portions or larger portions to share with couples and between families. All in all, a great time was had by all and the weather was hot but hey, it’s Labor Day and all down hill from here so… enjoy the sun, right?
If you haven’t checked it out yet, you have Labor Day left – Monday, September 3. Check it out and enjoy! Parking is tough so for Labor Day, you can park at the USPS building at 14th and Bannock area.
