Happy September! I just love this time of year – college football is on, everything starts switching over to pumpkin spice and the weather finally finds the 70s. So wonderful. There are so many wonderful events in the neighborhood this month, but here are a few selections to get you and your family out and about!
Sunday, September 10
Park Hill Home Tour and Street Fair
This Denver tradition began in 1978 when a local Realtor organized a tour of Park Hill homes to showcase the rich history and diverse architecture of the neighborhood. Over the years, the Home Tour & Street Fair has grown and evolved into a community event that, in addition to featuring beautiful homes and historic landmarks, includes over 100 vendors, food trucks, live entertainment, children’s activities, and a wine & beer garden.
