Deals: Energy Day, Fall Break, Broncos Win Deals & more

posted by:

I will be joining the drive up the mountains this weekend to see the leaves in the high country. I was lucky enough to spend the last couple weeks in the Northeast United States seeing leaves of bright reds and awesome fall colors – but there is something about my home state, that we even named Colorado (which has the world color in it) – which means we, too, are one of the best places to see fall. Fall also means great deals, thinking about ski season, a pumpkin festival or two. See our guide to Colorado’s best fall colors, festivals and corn mazes
Energy DayEnergy Day is a free, family-focused event that attracts students, educators, and families, showcasing real-world examples and interactive exhibits to highlight the fun students can have in their future careers if they used their classroom skills to pursue STEM education and fill Colorado’s workforce-ready pipeline.  This year’s Energy Day Festival is Saturday, Sept. 28, at East High School, 1600 City Park Esplanade, where you can learn, listen to music, eat great food from area food trucks and enjoy time with your family and friends.
