A writer at Fort Collins Now once observed that Fort Collins seems addicted to downtown parties. There seems to be some sort of festival here every week, particularly in the summer in the downtown area. It is sad, then, that the annual New West Fest would be the first festival I’d get to go to virtually all year. That’s what happens when one seems to be traveling all the time—he misses all the good stuff at home.
There was lots of music, food, and fun here. I particularly enjoyed perusing the various exhibits and eating a mouth-watering vegetarian gyro from a Greek booth. There were even a few interesting vehicles on hand—not bad for what was supposed to be primarily a music festival, with numerous stages scattered around Old Town.
Here are some photos.
