A relatively new Aurora community — Painted Prairie — hosts it’s biggest event, Prairie Harvest Fest, for a fourth year. Fun fall festivities will be underway on Saturday, October 7, 2023, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at High Prairie Park. Enjoy a pumpkin patch, horse-drawn hayrides, face painting, pumpkin decorating, a farmers market, sweet treats, food trucks, builder open houses and so much more.
Costumes are encouraged! This year, there will be a costume contest. Judging will take place at noon for four different groups: Kids aged 2 to 6, Kids aged 7 to 17, Adults aged 18+ and Pets!
The prizes? An overnight stay at Gaylord Rockies Resort + a family 4-pack to ICE. Pets could trot home with a $125 Chewy gift card. Costumes must be family-friendly or you will be disqualified.
High Prairie Park is at E. 59th Pl. & N. Orleans St. in Aurora.
