A Taste of Colorado, a four day, Labor Day weekend event, is a revival of the Festival of Mountains and Plains, originally a carnival similar to Mardi Gras, that celebrates the ending of summer. It originally started in 1895 and ran until 1902 and was revived in 1983.
There were more than 50 Colorado food establishments and some 280 artisans and misc vendors that lined the streets surrounding Civic Center Park.
Cheese curds! These were Minnesota State Fair worthy! We shared, though, so I was good and only ate a few! Back in the day, at the Great Minnesota Get Together, we would eat 3 baskets each through out the day. What were we thinking?!?!
It was a wonderful afternoon.
Til next time ~ find your joy!
