Fall in Colorado is the time for all sorts of fall festivals, including this one in Estes Park. There'll be a ton of food, beers, music and fun; along with someone winning $10,000.

By the end of September, the colors in Estes will be magnificent, the elk rut will be in full swing, and Coloradoans will be breaking out our "puffy" vests. To celebrate the first weekend of Autumn, Estes Park puts on a great party.
