A Day of Family Fun at Monster Jam
The entire family will be on the edge of their seats at Monster Jam as you watch men and women compete from behind the wheels of crowd favorites like Scooby-Doo, the Black Pearl, and the Ice Cream Man. Monster Jam’s more than 50 trucks race and perform stunts, including backflips, wheelies, and donuts (the trick, not the treat). They even compete in a skills event where they have to have two tires in the air simultaneously. No, you’re not imagining it. The arena really is shaking! That’s because each Monster Jam truck weighs six tons and generates 1,500 horsepower.
Celebrating Christmas: Luminova at Denver's Elitch Gardens
Come along as we check out Luminova at Denver's Elitch Gardens. Here, bigger is better with a crown jewel 65-foot-tall Christmas tree. It even dwarfs the 25-foot-tall "unmeltable" snowman and 16-foot-tall ornaments and presents surrounding it. Here you can take a stroll through the 200-foot-long Candy Cane Tunnel, visit Santa, who is on-site, and his helpers! Plus, since the event is hosted by Elitch Gardens, visitors can also enjoy their favorite rides like the Big Wheel, Dragon Wing, Blazin Buckaroo, and Meow Wolf's Kaleidoscape.
Visiting Anderson Farms in Northern Colorado
Taking the family to Anderson Farms to explore one of the greatest pumpkin patches is one of our favorite ways to celebrate the fall season. From a ride on the barrel train to going on the slides, kids and grown-ups alike will have a blast. The duck race, corn maze, feeding the farm animals, and riding a wagon to a field with thousands of pumpkins to pick make this a top pick for fall fun in Colorado.
