As a separate welcome to visitors, the Colorado Pilots Association has published an event to invite pilots to fly in to the North Fork Valley airport to attend the Mountain Harvest Festival this year.  The online posting highlights music, mountainharvestfestival.org website and the need to reserve lodging well in advance.   Thanks to pilots for helping Mountain Harvest Festival take flight!
