Sweet! The Palisade Peach Festival begins today

The 44th annual Palisade Peach Festival gets under way in downtown Palisade tonight, celebrating the harvest of one of Colorado's tastiest fruits.

Three days of family-friendly festivities including peach-eating contests, a bike-and-kayak race and pop-up dinners in the orchards kick off with tonight's free ice cream social, with peach tastings and live music. Visit the website for a full schedule and ticketing information.
