In some places‚ the smell of burning leaves is synonymous with fall. In Pueblo‚ the savory aroma of roasting chilies signals summer’s end.

The annual Loaf ’N Jug Chile & Frijoles Festival‚ held each year in late September‚ is Pueblo’s harvest celebration. The festival is sponsored by the Greater Pueblo Chamber of Commerce.

Every year, thousands pay homage to two of the Pueblo area’s best loved crops – green chilies‚ particularly Pueblo chile‚ and frijoles or pinto beans.

The event features music‚ arts and crafts‚ cooking competitions and chilies‚ chilies‚ chilies. Held downtown along Union Avenue‚ it draws Pueblo residents as well as people from across the state and around the nation.

    I won't be able to attend after all. I have been selected to attend CERT training with the Police department. So excited!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
