October has always been my favorite month. I’ll admit when I was kid it probably had a lot to do with my birthday falling this month. And though I can’t quite muster up the same enthusiasm for turning a year older these days, I do still love October. But now it has more to do with things like the freshly pressed cider that I practically drink daily this time of year, the changing leaves that make our street brilliant with color, and the crisp weather that means it’s time to get out cozy sweaters and boots. Need more reasons than that to get excited about this month? Here are a few fun things to do in Denver in October 2017…
