Over the past few weeks we have been enjoying sunny weather with highs of around 60 degrees. All around Palisade, Colorado, and the Wine Country Inn, it is just a matter of time before our peach trees are in full blossom and our vines start to bud.
On Sunday, March 28, Palisade is celebrating the arrival of Spring with its annual Spring Fest. Activities include a street brunch; Bloody Mary, beer & wine bar; vendors; entertainment; cruiser bike rally & ride; historical walking tour of downtown Palisade; and tours of a winery/vineyard, alpaca farm, and orchard.
Palisade International Honeybee Festival. Downtown Palisade will come alive with entertainment, food, drink and vendors. Festival guests can stroll down Main Street to the Community Center where Palisade Art Lovers will host their annual Peach Blossom Art Show.
Cycling is certainly a popular activity during spring and whether it is street bikes or mountain bikes you prefer, there are plenty of great ways to enjoy your favorite hobby.
