Treats, but no tricks, at Harvest Festival

Ring in the fall with live music, free food and a bonfire at Colorado Mountain College’s second annual Harvest Festival on Tuesday. The celebration will take place at the college’s Vail-Eagle Valley Campus in honor of HERO scholarship recipients and donors.

In addition to live music and a bonfire (watched over by the college’s fire science students and staff), attendees can lounge on bales of hay and enjoy free mulled cider, chili dogs and s’mores. Children are welcome to attend wearing their Halloween costumes and take part in a costume parade and other activities like face painting.

All of the fun isn’t just for the children, though. Door prizes will be drawn throughout the night for the adults, including a chance at a free one-day technology course.

The HERO scholarship program at CMC is funded by private businesses, as well as the CMC Foundation. The program is helping to financially support 38 students this semester. HERO scholars are held to high standards and must be enrolled in six or more credit hours, as well as maintain a minimum grade point average of 2.5.

The festivities take place Tuesday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., at the CMC campus at 150 Miller Ranch Road in Edwards. For questions, please call the college at 569-2900.
