With the end of season in sight, Fort Uncompahgre adds a new feather to enhance the last Saturday Trade Day of the season.
The Cedaredge Methodist Church under the leadership of Pastor Joe Agne will be at the fort from 1 to 3 p.m. for the first annual Blessing of the Animals.
The public is invited to bring their family "friends" from goldfish to a horse to receive a special blessing. Nothing is too small or too large to participate in this unique service. Everyone and everything is welcome.
Saturday Trade Days is a monthly event at Fort Uncompahgre. A giant open air market offers art, crafts, jewelry, antiques and collectibles, new and used merchandise and more.
There is no charge for this event, which is set for Saturday, Oct. 21, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
To reserve booth space, call 874-8349.
