Come for a one hour creekside walk on the wide dirt trail next to the Cherry Creek Bike and Pedestrian pathway, and/or on the lower narrow dirt trail sometimes inches from the creek with the thrill of the bushes from the wild urban wilderness brushing your shoulders.
After our walk, we'll visit the free annual Pumpkin Harvest Festival inside the Four Mile Historic Park (FMHP). If you can't make it for the walk, you'll miss us, unless you just happen to see us inside the festival.
Could someone volunteer to meet with people who are not going on the walk inside the festival around 10 AM? If someone volunteers, our dual-schedule groups could meet after the walk. Please email or call Fran at [masked], (303)[masked], at your earliest convenience.
This FMHP area is Fran and Richard's neighborhood. Fran used to volunteer as a historic guide here many years ago.
Below is a copy of the introduction to this event, which is online on the FMHP website.
Pumpkin Harvest Festival
Saturday, October 06 - Sunday, October 07 | 10:00 am–4:00pm
Join us on Saturday and Sunday, October 6 & 7 from 10am-4pm. There will be a very exciting county fair area where you can rummage through our costume bank and take an ‘old-timey’ photo in front of the Four Mile House, enter a pie eating contest or win something yummy in an old-fashioned cake walk. Of course, all the favorites are back too! Find the perfect pumpkin in the patch, create your very own scarecrow, listen and dance to old time music, play historic games or make a historic craft. There will be plenty of food available including homemade caramel apples and other goodies. Be sure to visit the mountain men and Native American encampment, take a horse-drawn ride and tour Four Mile House, Denver’s oldest standing structure, as the Booth family prepares for the harvest.
ADMISSION: FREE! (Charge for pumpkins and some activities.) * All proceeds support the education programs of Four Mile Historic Park
