There's plenty of Fall Fun to have this weekend.
Run With The Burros
Manitou Brewing will host their annual Run With The Burros event this Saturday. The free 5k jog or walk will begin at 11 am and run through some of the trails around Manitou with the burros hitting the trail too. No need to sign up ahead of time, just show up before 11. Following the 5k, Manitou Brewing will have $1 off pints until 2 pm for participants. If you’re curious but not interested in running, you can still come down and meet some of the burros between 11:30 am and 2 pm. Find more information here.
Venetucci Pumpkin Patch
October is also a month for pumpkins and Venetucci Farms is full of pumpkins this year. Their Pumpkin Patch Days will wrap up this Saturday. The farm will be open from 9 am to 3 pm with a wide variety of pumpkins available. They’ll sell for $.50/lb. Be sure to find a good one! Find more information here.
