St. Patrick’s Day

Heidi & donkey

The following is the transcript from my weekly radio segment on KRFC 88.9 FM in Fort Collins, Colorado. If you’d like, listen to the AUDIO HERE. *** Hi, my name is Heidi and I’m the Mayor of HeidiTown.com, a blog about events, festivals and travel across Colorado. Before I tell you what’s happening this weekend, I want to tell you about this month’s HeidiTown.com Gives Back recipient. Every month, I

Irish Festival 2008

St. Patrick’s Day seemed the appropriate time to post my article about the Rocky Mountain Irish Festival. As you know, the Mayor likes all things Irish and she likes Irish festivals most of all. And as you can see by the adjacent photo, Leprechauns like me. By the way, being kissed by a Leprechaun gives you good luck for life, so obviously I am good to go! I attended the

Rocky Mountain Irish Festival 2011

In fact, as a redhead with an Irish grandmother, it’s one of my all-time favorite holidays.  So it seems appropriate, with St. Pat’s just around the corner, that we are welcoming a new *green* sponsor here in town. Rocky Mountain Irish Festival is now an official sponsor of HeidiTown.com,
