Deals: Avalanche Family Night, Colorado Pumpkin Patch & More
posted by: Gretchen
There was a recent article in Time Magazine about how kids sports are turning professional. I notice that in my world too. Last week we actually had a sell-out at my son’s high school football game– you had to get your tickets a week in advance (and the game went until almost midnight). This week we can only buy tickets online. Do you notice kids sports becoming more “professional” too?
Family Fire Muster. Kids join West Metro Fire Protection District to become a firefighter for the day at the Fire Muster. Saturday, September 23rd from 10-2 p.m. at the West Metro Fire Rescue’s Training Center (3535 South Kipling Street Lakewood, CO 80235) see live fire demonstrations, participate in fun activities and learn how to prepare your families for emergencies. Kids of all ages will enjoy fun activities like the Junior Firefighter Challenge, Teddy Bear Clinic, Bike Rodeo and inflatable slides.
Colorado Pumpkin Patch. There are TWO Mile High Mamas Days at the patch on Sunday, Oct. 1 and Sunday, Oct. 15. Anyone who visits us at 4600 E. Hwy 86 in Castle Rock from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. on Oct. 1 and says they’re with MHM can get in for $8.50/person…PLUS each get a small pumpkin to take home. You have the option of upgrading to a larger, carving pumpkin for a few extra bucks.Normal admission is $9.50 for adults ($11 for kids in mid-October), so the $8.50 rate with a pumpkin is a great deal! Kids 2 and under are free. Or try the Family Pass: One day use for 4 people (any age), 4 drinks (any size), and 1 pumpkin ($5 value). This is a great value at $38 to save families cash when they visit. If you really love pumpkins try the Season Pass: Unlimited admission from Sept. 23-Oct. 29. $20/person, regardless of age.
