Things to Do

Today: How do your zucchinis measure up?

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.
