There are all sorts of reasons to love autumn: Halloween, rustling leaves, Indian summer and fall festivals, one of which takes place tomorrow -- namely the Diggity Urban Harvest Festival, a street-food, music and brew blowout hosted by Diggity, a nonprofit that fosters community camaraderie through neighborhood gatherings.
The fun kicks off at noon at 901 Bannock Street, with dishes from numerous food trucks -- Crock Spot, Mikes2 Kitchen, Chef Driven, N.Z's Smokin' Guns, Bon Bon Buggy, Sweet Revenge and Mythos Gourmet Greek -- suds from Left Hand Brewing, pumpkin-carving contests, bobbing for apples, haunted hayride giveaways and games.
"Just because the weather is shifting doesn't mean that Denver's favorite gourmet food trucks won't be gathering to create fun parties for all the foodies in town," says Stephen Daniels, who runs the Crock Spot cart and truck.

And this event, insists Daniels, won't be your run-of-the-mill street-food soiree. "Yes, we'll have all the great food trucks and plenty of beer, but there are tons of other fun activities to keep people busy, and there's great music, too." And, he adds, "it's a fantastic location with readily available parking."
Admission is free, but bring cash for food, beer and other frivolities.
