13th annual harvest party

May Selby
Mountain Mayhem

Guests arrived by bike, by shuttle and on foot for the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies' Harvest Party at Rock Bottom Ranch on Oct. 18. The family-friendly affair sold out with 1,200 people attending the event, which benefits ACES Ed, the environmental-science-education program for 42 regional schools, including three full-time programs at Aspen Elementary, Basalt Elementary and Crystal River Elementary schools.

The weather cooperated for the fall festivities, which included pumpkin carving, apple cider pressing, farm tours, hayrides, face painting, a silent auction and more.

Thanks to sponsors Smoke Modern BBQ, Alpine Bank, Jeffrey Berkus Architects, Aspen Brewing Co., of Grape and Grain, KSPN, The Aspen Times, the Glenwood Springs Post Independent and Blazing Adventures, the popular event was another grand success.
