There is so much to do this weekend! My family is heading to Hotchkiss for a farm tour & dinner at Ela Family Farms. But the pickings are good down here in town too. Whether you head to the Farmer’s Market, go to BMOCA, head to the Denver Art Museum’s Free day, dance to Dan Zanes, go on a hike, or all of the above it’s sure to be a great weekend!
Be aware of wildlife. There have been bears and muntain lions spotted in town. There is a Supermoon 5/5 @ 9:30pm, where the moon is the closest to earth it will be all year on the same night there is a full moon.
