Even though it’s raining today, there’s still plenty of time to go play in the parks before winter hits! October offers all sorts of different activities and events in the parks of Boulder county. If you’re not sure how to get started, this weekend is the perfect opportunity to check out this assortment of events:
This is Longmont’s regular 2nd Friday downtown event but with a Day of the Dead twist, featuring storytelling under the stars, trolley rides, Day of the Dead art at the Muse Gallery, and a tour of the Longmont Museum’s Day of the Dead exhibit.
If you’re a grandparent, come take your grandkid to a free fishing derby, supplies provided! This event is open for fishing to all seniors 64 years and older with a valid Colorado fishing license and kids 15 years and younger, but everyone is welcome to watch and enjoy the fall weather.
Come for a nice hike at beautiful Mud Lake and learn about a furry friends the bears, before they get into your trash cans.
If you are looking for some fall hikes to see beautiful fall colors, check here or here. I might also recommend Hessie trailhead, although the weather we’ve been having may have blown away all the leaves, it should still be a beautiful hike (Lost Lake, 1.5 mile hike from the trailhead is pictured below). Get outdoors and have fun in our Boulder county parks!
