I’m finding it terribly hard to believe that it is the last day of September already! But with so many fun events this October, I’m excited for Fall! Mark your calendars for Thursday October 23. We’ll be gathering at the home of the super awesome Shelley Aibner around 6 pm. Bring a dish to share and your favorite beverage! Soooo looking forward to a night with all the Mermaids!
This weekend is Rifle’s Annual Fall Festival! Events include Thursday Oct 2nd Chili Cookoff and Jalapeno Eating Contest sponsored by Rifle Area Chamber of Commerce at the Garfield County Fairgrounds from 5:30 – 8:30 pm. Friday Oct 3rd FREE Music at The New Ute Events Center. Bring your dancing shoes for traditional Octoberfest music by Alpine Echo outdoors beginning at 5:30 followed by upbeat bluegrass tunes performed by The Leonard Curry Trio inside The Ute at 7 pm. Beer and wine will be available for purchase and Jay’s Steakhouse is serving concessions. Saturday’s festivities begin at 10 am at Centennial Park with a “Great Pumpkin Egg Hunt” followed by music, food, face painting, art vendors, and entertainment through 4 pm. Check out the official poster for full event details!
And, Halloween would not be the same without a bash with Skye (seriously you’ll just have to come back every October)! This year The Boomtown Players and The New Ute Theater Society are hosting an Intergalactic Halloween at The New Ute Theater Friday, October 31 from 8-11.
