I have to admit that October is one of my favorite months of the year. So many things are happening here in Denver. After such a hot summer, it’s great to get some cooler weather moving in. The leaves are changing colors, people are planting mums and other fall/winter plants. The Zombie crawl, Oktoberfest and Halloween are bringing wonderful smells and sights around the neighborhoods. I grew up in Cincinnati, which has one of the best Oktoberfest in the United States and this time of year always makes me a little homesick for Ohio. But Denver doesn't do a bad job of celebrating. So have a great October, enjoy the snow today and the 70’s by next week. These images are from the RMN negative collection and were taken in 1969 during the first Oktoberfest in Denver.
