One of my favorite things to do this time of year would be going to the National Western Stock Show and Rodeo.

I always get so excited for the Stock Show's kick-off parade and I definitely get bummed towards the end of January when they wrap it all up.

The Stock Show is not the only happening event around the State though. Colorado is full of entertainment and always an adventure.

Lafayette Oatmeal Festival

The 23rd Annual Oatmeal Festival is a wonderful family affair. It's great that Colorado is health-conscious. The focus is to live a healthy lifestyle with a 5K walk/run and a delightful oatmeal breakfast.

ULLR Festival

Join the party at Breckenridge. Celebrating the 56th year of the ULLR Festival. Toss your Christmas tree into the Ullr Bonfire or participate in the freezing Ullr Ice Plunge. Yikes.
