Renaissance faire lasts 3 days along river

All are invited, “be ye noble or pirate, dragon or fairy, soldier or saint,” to the Heroes Harvest Festival and Fantasy Faire.

Sponsored by Thunder Mountain Colorado Living Center, the faire will go from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday through Sunday, Oct. 26–28, at 312 29 Road, along the Colorado River.

Then archery tournament — traditional bow only — is open to the public and there will be prizes.

Admission is free.

Three-day inclusive camping passes are available to purchase, offering access to the after-hours village.
