EVANS, CO-The best fall festival in Weld County returns to the City of Evans on Saturday, September 17th. The city’s annual celebration will be held in East Evans at City Park and Riverside Park and will feature fireworks, food, superheroes, princesses, live music, and much more.
“The festival never gets old,” Evans Mayor Mark Clark said. “I go to Heritage Days every year with my family. The food and music is unbelievable and it’s a really a great chance to connect with your community. We can all rally around this celebration and become closer as friends and neighbors.”
The day begins with a pancake breakfast at City Park, followed by a parade that takes over the town square. Each year, the parade puts the city’s multicultural heritage on display, with Lipizzaner horses dancing through the streets alongside floats that pay tribute to our country’s military veterans. Several marching bands from the Greeley-Evans School District 6 will fill the air with beautiful music that sets a rhythmic backdrop to the celebration.
“The parade represents the diversity of our City,” Evans Communications Manager Lance Snow, said. “We have displays, floats, music, and traditions from all walks of life that are welcome and celebrated during the event. It puts our city’s pride and unity on display and that’s a good thing for everyone.”
Following the parade, the party shifts to neighboring Riverside Park for an all-day slate of activities, including food trucks and a beer garden, along with amusements and vendors for all ages. Live music will fill the airwaves throughout the afternoon and into the evening. When the sun sets, the festival will culminate with a spectacular fireworks show presented by PDC Energy.
