We went to A Taste of Colorado a few weekends ago and we had such a great time. There is always so much to do, EAT, see, EAT, games to play, EAT… It is called TASTE of Colorado after all.
I had one thing on my mind… FUNNEL CAKE!
It was a BEAUTIFUL day.
I spotted the Mega Millions taking a break in the shade! Phew it was hot the day we went. Thank goodness the Xcel Energy booth was handing out a spray bottle/fan bottle.
I do have to caution you around the games area. They are cash only, while everything else requires tickets, and the people working these games put the hard sell on the kids! They talk directly to the kids telling them they will give the kids an extra try, or SOMETHING to get them over there. It’s too much for me. And then when they get the kid over there they have them play the game, if the kid misses they show him how to win it and want more money. It’s really kind of heartbreaking for kids’ whose parents don’t have the cash to spend on these games. Mine included. I actually got angry at one of the vendors. So….. be warned, if you don’t want to spend the cash, avoid the area.
