The Great Fruitcake Toss

When: Sat., Jan. 12, 9 a.m. 2013

According to the release, a Travel Channel crew will shoot footage for a new show at today's Fruitcake Toss at the Manitou Springs High School track (401 El Monte Place, manitousprings.org). It's picked a good year, the first in which non-gas-powered compressors are being allowed into the air-powered pneumatic division. If this all sounds too high-level for what seems like an easy concept — throw your crappy holiday confection across a field and win a prize — you might want to check out all the intricacies of the now-18th annual event between 10 and 2. Your entry fee is one non-perishable food item for Westside Cares. And, no, fruitcake does not count. — Kirsten Akens
