Strawberry Festival Weekend

This weekend was the 113th Strawberry Festival AND the 125th birthday celebration of Glenwood Springs. Lots to do.





Some parade pix. Lots of birthday cakes, strawberries, and little shriner's cars.




Here are some pix from the festival. See the two ladies with tiaras? They are the "condiment queens." Their motto: Eat safely. Use our condiments!
We bought some chipotle mustard.







And of course, the Strawberry Shortcut Race. It's a benefit for Colorado Special Olympics! We ran into our friends, Amy and Jim from Boulder. What fun! Amy and I ran in the 5K race, (there's also a 10K and a 1 mile fun run), and I finished in 32 minutes, surprising myself. Amy finished ahead of me by a couple minutes. Good job, Amy! We'll do it again next year. Same time, same place.
