It’s time for another HeidiTown segment on KRFC 88.9 FM. As a reminder, I’ve decided to cut down on these radio shows because I create entirely new content for each segment and it’s too much to keep up with on a weekly basis. So, the HeidiTown show can be heard now twice a month on the radio. This week’s show includes a preview of a couple upcoming winter carnivals and
Next weekend, we’ll be heading down the rabbit’s hole and it will lead us to the Grand Lake Winter Carnival. I love small town festivals. There’s just something so real and so special about a town coming together to enjoy the company of friends, new and old. And while I love the big Colorado ski towns, sometimes it’s nice to get away from the glitz of a resort and simply
It’s time for another segment of the HeidiTown show on KRFC 88.9 FM. It’s already been an amazing year here at HeidiTown, and it’s only been a few weeks! On this week’s show, I do a little housekeeping. There are some changes on the horizon for the HeidiTown show, so listen to find out what’s in store. Also, I preview some of my upcoming trips to Grand County this winter.
Four years ago, Ryan and I decided to go snowshoeing in Rocky Mountain National Park, and afterwards we stopped in Estes Park and stumbled into what has become one of our favorite winter festivals. At that time the Estes Park Winter Festival was a small affair, a lot of local cooks serving up chili and just a few beer and wine vendors, but what fun we had. We tasted every
After a week off, it’s time for another installment of the Mayor on KRFC 88.9 FM, community public radio in Fort Collins, Colorado. Starting in February, these shows will occur on the 1st and 3rd week of each month. Life is just getting too crazy to do a show each and every week. Remember, if you’d like to catch the show on the radio, I’m on at 5:55 p.m. on
This year is the 17th Annual First Night in Fort Collins. This a New Year’s Eve celebration for the entire family. This is a non-alcoholic New Year’s Eve party with entertainment galore. This year’s theme is Enchanted Voyage, and the night will not disappoint. First Night events take place in 12 different venues around the city, from Lincoln Center to Old Town Square, and festivities get under way at 6
It’s time for another radio segment on KRFC 88.9 FM. I’ve been on KRFC for over a year and that’s more than 52 weeks worth of festival information that has gone out to listeners. I sincerely appreciate KRFC giving me the opportunity to share HeidiTown with their audience and I look forward to another fun year. Last week I was asked to speak to a local Fort Collins MOMS Group.
The 16th Annual Biergarten Festival – July 13 & 14, 2012 Last year I was interviewed by Kama, from 99.9 FM in Fort Collins, Colorado. She asked me, “What makes a great festival?” I answered that setting is a huge part of what makes a festival special and authenticity is huge. There are three parts to creating great ambiance at an event and that’s setting, authenticity and layout. The
I was raised in a strict vegetarian household, and when I was 16-year-old I rebelled by eating bacon, and since then I’ve been making up for my childhood meat deprivation. Today, I freaking love meat, and barbecue festivals allow me to embrace my teenage rebellion and eat myself into a meat coma. Colorado has become a breeding ground for amazing barbecue events, and I like the trend. Loveland, Colorado has
If you haven’t been to the Denver Zoo in a while, it’s a great time to go. The new Toyota Elephant Passage has opened and being a huge fan of the zoo, I had to go and check it out for myself, and for my HeidiTown citizens, of course. I borrowed a friend’s 10-year-old so I didn’t look like the crazy kid-less lady at the zoo. I chose to take
