Well, as of tomorrow, summer will have officially gone by the wayside, and autumn will have arrived in Arvada. The leaves haven't quite gotten the message yet, but I'd give it a week and we'll see yellow and orange lighting up our neighborhoods.
If you're looking for a wonderful way to experience Colorado in the fall, and you've got a little time to kill, why not take a drive up through the Maroon Bells this weekend and check out the aspens as they change colors? We all talk about doing it, we all tell our friends and family from out of state that it's something they can't miss if they're here in the fall. But how many of us take the opportunity to see our home state in all its glory when we have the chance?
And once you're home, it's time to start planning for October! The City of Arvada has its annual Festival of Scarecrows this year on October 7th, which is a great way to celebrate the chill in the air and the beauty of fall with all of our neighbors.
As Halloween approaches, we'll make sure to give shout outs to local pumpkin patches and costume shops, so you can plan your season appropriately. Until then, happy Fall!
