It's harvest season, and if you've been reaping the rewards of your garden -- and you're proud of how your squash looks -- then you bring your home-grown zucchinis to the Parks & Gardens Office, 4309 West 44th Avenue, between 4 and 7 p.m. for the Northwest Denver Heaviest Zucchini Contest. The $5 entree fee will benefit a school of your choice. For more details, call 303-455-3779 or go to www.parksandgardens.com.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
