Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off

When: Sat., Oct. 18, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. 2014

That same instinct that pushes us toward obese cats, Hummers and Godzilla movies dictates that we prefer our pumpkins gigantic. Like, stupid huge-ass enormous. Enter the annual Giant Festival in Old Colorado City's Old Town Square and Bancroft Park (between the 2400 and 2600 blocks on West Colorado Avenue, shopoldcoloradocity.com). Catch a farmers market from 7 to 2, a sidewalk sale, the big pumpkin weigh-off and gourd-carving, plus kids activities from 10 to 3 and happy hours at local bars and eateries from noon to 5. Overall, it's a big deal. — Matthew Schniper
