It's officially Autumn, people. The weather is throwing temper tantrums, the leaves are spiraling out of control, and everyone's out and about experiencing the last breaths of mild temperatures before the proverbial first snow.

With these last breaths of the outdoors calling, so comes the fall-themed events and even the start of indoor winterpaloozas. This expanse of activities means that if you are bored this weekend, it's absolutely your own fault.

We've put together a special list of what you might want to get out and about to do, and as a bonus, we've paired it with our favorite TGS products to enhance your experience.(But, as always, consume responsibly, legally, and do not drive high.)

Pumpkin Festival

Friday, October 11th - Sunday, October 13th

9am at Denver Botanic Gardens Chatfield Farms in Littleton

The quintessential Fall activity, complete with a 10-acre pumpkin patch, corn maze, face painting, food trucks, and carnival games. This event is family-friendly and open to everyone!

Chatfield recommends purchasing tickets ($8 for non-members) in advance, and it's a BYOW (bring your own wagon) event!

TGS's Recommended Pairing:We recommend enjoying someearthy tasting, highly-potent floweras an homage to the earthy festival vibes (guaranteed to make the corn maze way more complicated). Make sure you do it legally and get someone else to drive you there. And please, keep it classy by not disrupting the family-friendly atmosphere of the festival!

Thriftopia

The Dairy Block is hosting ThriftCon, where vintage vendors will have all kinds of throwback looks on sale. We all know the 70s are coming back into style, and even if those looks aren't for you, Halloween is right around the corner...

TGS's Recommended Pairing:A five-pack of Regular Cones, because with all the newfangled ways to consume cannabis, when was the last time you just smoked a joint?

And, if none of these events tickle your fancy, come up with our own fall event/cannabis pairing by choosing your favorite product for pick-up on ourwebsite, or visiting one of our 18locations. Have fun out there!

Quick Fact

Curing Cannabis Plants- This very gradual drying process involves moderate humidity and mild temperatures, preserving the dimensionality of cannabis plants and the consumption experience. The better and more gradual the curing process, the more sophisticated a grower's yields become, including preserved aromas, flavors, and potency.
