This year, the day after Halloween gave people of all ages a chance to go trick-or-treating at the APEX Center in Arvada. But this wasn't just a hunt for candy.
This year, the day after Halloween gave people of all ages a chance to go trick-or-treating at the APEX Center in Arvada. But this wasn't just a hunt for candy. Taste of Arvada is an event that happens every year, on the Thursday before Daylight Savings. You can visit over 50 booths from companies all over Arvada, and taste food from over 25 restaurants in Arvada.
The restaurants included favorites such as Panera Bread, who served bread (no surprise there) and sandwiches. They also had newer restaurants like Fuzzy's Taco Shop, which had Mexican food and a wheel that you could spin to get prizes.
Food wasn't the only goodie you could find around the booths. Companies such as Bright Now Dental, State Farm Insurance, and Nextcare Urgent Care were handing out pens, candy (like we didn't get enough on Halloween), lip balm, and many other things.
"Taste of Arvada brings out residents and the best restaurants in Arvada," Jerry Marks, the president of Custom Environmental Services, one of the sponsors, said.
Bliss Frozen Yogurt had free samples to try, but of all of the frozen yogurt, "Pomegranate-Raspberry" was tried the most, even over the seasonal "Pumpkin" flavor.
I personally enjoyed the Pumpkin-Pecan Waffle from the Egg & I, but the people who came all got a ballot for the best Tastes of Arvada. Tickets were $12 beforehand and $15 at the door. So if you were bummed out that you didn't get to vote this year, make sure to put the Taste of Arvada on your calendar for next year.
