Just a few miles east of our house lies the small town of Palisade.
Palisade is home to many orchards and vineyards, but is probably best
known for it's peaches...especially in Colorado. Every August, the town
holds it's Peach Festival and peach lovers flock in from miles around.
The festival is well run, with great transportation to and from outlying
parking lots. Lynn and I parked near the elementary school and then
walked along the Colorado Riverfront Trail until we came to the festival
grounds at Riverbend Park. It was really sunny and hot, making it a bit
uncomfortable but there were a lot of great craft booths and food stands
for everyone to enjoy. It was a good time had by all.
