The 17th Annual Lafayette Peach Festival brought thousands of peaches and peach lovers to Lafayette on Saturday, August 20. Festival-goers lined up for nearly every conceivable form of the fruit, from smoothies and ice cream to grilled peaches and peach jam. The festival featured the bounty of the Palisade peach harvest from the Western Slope, along with other fair food and entertainment.
