Tomorrow I will stand beside a very good friend as she ties the knot in Estes Park, Colorado. She has had a longtime love affair with the town; she and her fiance had their first date there, got engaged there and will now be married there. So I thought this was the ideal week to post an article about the town of Estes Park. As you’ll discover, I’ve had mixed
It’s true that kids run and play in South Park, and the occasional burro can be seen trotting through town. It is also true that South Park is located in the Colorado Rockies.

With festival season heading into full swing in just a couple weeks, I thought I’d share a few things with my readers. First, I want to remind everyone that HeidiTown is not a calendar of events. I do not, nor will I ever be able to keep track of every festival that occurs in Colorado. And quite frankly, I don’t want to. Also, I rarely write about fundraising events. I
Spring has sprung in HeidiTown. The birds are singing, the fields outside of town are greening up and there’s a feeling of warmth in the air.

Love it or hate it, the fruitcake has become a staple of American culture and this Saturday, January 8, the small town of Manitou Springs, Colorado celebrates their 16th Annual Fruitcake Toss. Manitou Springs is one of the Mayor’s favorite Colorado towns, in
In the Spring of 2010, the format of HeidiTown changed. Instead of concentrating on movies, theater, books and the occasional restaurant review, I turned all my focus to events and festivals around Colorado. I love this new format and it seems to be a real hit with my readers. In the upcoming year there will be more changes in store. With the help of a NoCo web designer extraordinaire I’m
