This Weekend: Home Expo, Murder-Mystery Show, Vet 5K Fundraiser
Your weekend just got interesting. Well, it could get interesting, if you attend any or all of these upcoming weekend events.
This fall home-improvement expo offers the perfect opportunity to finish up any last-minute decorating before the holidays. This event is taking place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday at Island Grove Event Center in Greeley, Colorado. There is both free admission and parking, making this expo a “must-do” on your weekend itinerary. But wait, there’s more. If you show your New Country 99.1 app on your phone, you get a coupon for a free appetizer – and who doesn’t love free food?
The Dinner Detective Interactive Murder Mystery show will have you biting your fingernails and sitting on the edge of your seat. Not only did this show get named “Best Dinner Show” in Los Angeles and Denver for four straight years, but it is the largest interactive murder mystery dinner show in the country. Everyone’s a suspect at this four-course banquet; and as you enjoy the hors d’oeuvres, meal, salad, entrée and dessert, you will be experiencing suspenseful mayhem as you and your family or friends try and crack the case. But only one keen sleuth will break the code, and this winner will receive a prize package after the case is solved. Tickets for this mysterious evening are $54.00. This tasty case takes place at 6 p.m. on Saturday at the Hilton in Fort Collins, Colorado.
Veterans Day is coming up this Monday, and what better way to honor our veterans than with a 5K and yoga at one of Fort Collins’ favorite breweries? Odell Brewing in Old Town Fort Collins is hosting this event starting at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday to show support to our veterans with a family and pet-friendly event that people of all ages can enjoy. The casual 5K kicks off the days’ events, followed by a cool-down yoga session with Lululemon, paired with a breakfast sandwich from Snack Attack Specialty Sandwiches & Brews and a draft beer from Odell Brewing. Participate in the casual 5K with your choice of running, walking, biking, scootering etc. along the Poudre Trail. Additionally, there will be a “Silkie Showdown” where attendees will be competing in a who-wore-it best competition that encourages participants to dress up in your most fun exercise-friendly costumes or military silkies. Tickets are $15 and will include a free beer for our appropriately-aged guests. This event is geared to raise awareness and money for the local non-profit Vets4Life, which aims to strengthen the veteran population through community engagement, resource connection, service projects and a multitude of health and wellness programs.
