Palisade Peach Festival celebrates a bountiful crop
The late summer days mean roadside farm stands and farmers markets around the region are overflowing with peaches.
Palisade’s 54th annual peach festival took place recently to celebrate this year's crop.
Certain celebrities may get their peaches down in Georgia, but Palisade peaches are a summer staple of the Mountain West.
The annual Palisade Peach Agricultural Festival boasts peach-based novelties, crafts from local artisans, and a sampling of small businesses.
It's one of Colorado's most iconic summer festivals and one of the original agricultural festivals in the state, and ran from Thursday, August 11 to Sunday, August 14.
