Labor Day fun in Casper

This is my favorite time of year in Casper. The start of September brings the first hint of fall with cooler nights, football on the TV and pumpkin spice in every single item you could ever imagine. This is a great time to get out and explore the beauty that surrounds us at The Preserve at Greenway Park luxury apartments.

 

A must-do event for the family this weekend is Jurassic Quest, going on today through Labor Day at the Casper Events Center. The event features 80 animatronic life-size dinosaurs from the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods and there are rides, activities for the kids and a whole lot of fun things to explore.

 

For thrilling action and fun, checkout the horse racing and derby hat contest, going on tomorrow at the Central Wyoming Fairgrounds. For more information, click here.

 

Among the best things about living in Casper: all the opportunities to get out and enjoy nature. The National Historic Trails Interpretive Center has a variety of late-summer pioneer Trail Treks that are free and open to the public. The treks explore beautiful parts of the Wyoming landscape and are perfect for people who love to hike. It sure beats getting your weekend steps in on a treadmill. To register for these events or for more information on the Trail Trek series, contact Jason Vlcan at the NHTIC, (307) 261-7783.

 

You could spend every day having fun in Casper and thankfully, the weather this time of year supports getting outside and exploring. So find some fun this weekend. You won’t have to go far from The Preserve at Greenway Park luxury apartments.
