PUEBLO, COLO. - Chile lovers, rejoice!
The annual Chile & Frijoles Festival has arrived in Pueblo.
Thousands are expected this weekend in downtown Pueblo to celebrate two of the area's favorite crops: green chiles and frijoles (or pinto beans).
The aroma of roasting Pueblo chiles will signal summer's end and the arrival of fall. Festivalgoers can expect music, arts, crafts, a jalapeño-eating contest, a farmers market, cooking competitions and plenty of chiles.
Sunday morning features the "Hot to Trot" 10K, 5K, 2 Mile Walk and 1K Toddler Run.
Admission is $3 and children are free.
