The Dolores Harvest Festival and Car Show will take place from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Oct. 5 at Flanders Park.
The festival has new events this year. Check out the car show, strongman competition, chili contest, live concert, hay rides and petting zoo.
Browse rows of vendors offering locally grown produce while sipping fresh apple cider from Teal Cider, of Dolores, and Fenceline Cidery, of Mancos. Local craft beers and wines also will be available.
Marvel at classic and original cars set up along the perimeter of the park while eating a Navajo taco or homemade chili from the competition.
Kids will stay occupied with supervised games set up for them, including bobbing for apples, apple toss contest, three-legged race, dangling doughnut-eating contest, pumpkin painting and a hobbyhorse race on steeds the kids build themselves.
Anyone with a unique or classic vehicle is encouraged to sign up for the car show. Awards will be handed out for best car, truck, paint job and rat rod.
