GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. The day started off a little rainy, but that didn’t keep the crowds away from Lincoln Park for Grand Junction Parks and Recreation annual Arbor Fest. Recreation Supervisor Emily Krause said they would keep the fun going until the weather stopped them.

Hundreds gathered in the park to enjoy all of the festivities. There was live music, over 30 different craft beers to try from local breweries and a salsa and chili cook-off.

"Arbor Fest has been amazing,” Krause said. “It's a good first community event of the season. The rains have stopped and we really are enjoying a great time out here."

This event happens every year. Grand Junction Parks and Recreation also gave out free seedling trees to people who came. There were dozens of local vendors, crafts, and activities like tree climbing and bungee trampolines.
