Many daytime Silverthorne, CO, events are centered around holidays. Just when you think Charlie Brown has given up the ghost, Pumpkinfest invades the North Lawn of the pavilion. Kids of all ages are invited to search for their favorite orange gourd while wearing this season’s best costumes. The Holiday Bazaar as a Silverthorne, CO, daytime event happens in early December just in time for the gift-giving season. Local artisans show off their wares, and Santa’s lap is available while he waits patiently to hear children’s requests. Summertime at Meadow Creek Park or Trent Park Pond begins a partnership between Trout Unlimited and the youngest anglers in town for the Silverthorne Fishing Derby. Divided into age groups (up to 15 years old), your tots and teens will be happy and successful because the Department of Wildlife stocks the pond each season. Building on these early skills, kids move on to North Pond where catch-and-release fly-fishing using artificial lures and flies builds techniques for this fishing discipline. Rainbow Park hosts the annual Slide & Slip party. Just like it sounds, kids get wet and fly down the hill at Rainbow Park. Silverthorne dogs get in on the fun, too. Each season before the rec center pool closes for annual maintenance, Fido and friends are invited to go for a dip.
