If you consider yourself a mountain biker or you are looking to get out this weekend, the Fat Fire Festival is continuing in Downtown Fruita this weekend.

Here’s a quick history lesson on the Fat Tire Festival, it was started in 1995 by Tory Rarick. Since then, it has grown to over 50+ vendors that come out to celebrate annually. The festival encourages all mountain bike enthusiasts to gather and celebrate their cherished sport.

It’s a great event for people of all ages. I, myself, attended yesterday’s activities and it was a sight to see. The event began this past Thursday and will continue into tomorrow beginning at 10AM in downtown Fruita.
