Contest

and their off Race of the Santas in Breckenridge Colorado

CONTEST NOW CLOSED. Thank you.   As many of you know, I’m a huge fan of Breckenridge. Having stayed there multiple times, I’m pretty familiar with the town and I love the chill atmosphere. It’s more than just a ski town. It’s a real, work-a-day town with a rich history and tons of festivals that happen year round. One of those events is happening on Saturday, December 7, 2013. It’s

Win VIP tickets to Fall Harvest Brewfest

I haven’t done a giveaway for a very long time, but when Fall Harvest Brewfest approached me this year, I decided it was time.

Please note that Animal House is entirely

Win passes to Colorado Brewers' Festival in Fort Collins, Colorado

Northern Colorado is known as the Napa Valley of Beer for a very good reason – people here LOVE beer, and everyone fancies themselves a beer snob, and whether they enjoy stouts, IPAs, wheats or reds, it’s gotta be Colorado-brewed. Today, you’d be hard pressed to throw a rock and not hit a brewery in Northern Colorado. More than a dozen new breweries popped up in just the last year,

1940s WII Era Ball FB

Put on your reddest lips and slip on your most comfortable dancing shoes, it’s time for one of Colorado’s most unique events, the 1940s WWII Era Ball.

The popularity of these two events has resulted in a third ball being

Butterfly with pink flower

Nature has always has played a big part in my life. When I was just a little girl, growing up in the Pacific Northwest at the edge of the Puget Sound, my favorite outing was to our local interpretive center. Visiting this place and getting to know the biologists who worked there played a big part in the woman I am today. The center filled me with wonder and I

Ice Castles at Silverthorne night

When this Colorado attraction made it on my radar this winter I was so excited. This is the type of unique event that I love to share with my readers. This amazing structure, located in Silverthorne, Colorado, is built entirely by hand using ice and water as the sole building materials.  There is nothing like it in the country and quite possibly the world. You can visit the castle during

Oscar party at the Kress outside pic

If you’ve been around HeidiTown for more than a couple years, you’ll remember that I used to write movie reviews here, and I’m a bit of a film buff. I absolutely LOVE the Oscars. I am one of “those people,” and I start watching as soon as the red carpet is rolled out and the limos start arriving. Last year, I ran a similar contest here, and the winners documented
