Manitou Springs Great Fruitcake Toss
Manitou Springs, Colorado
Memorial Park - 12:00pm – 3:00pm Cost: One non-perishable food item, which will be donated to Westside Cares Food Bank, is suggested for attendance. Join local Manitoids to enjoy this old fashioned event of flying those left over fruitcakes! Old fashioned games of tossing fruitcakes, costume competition, libations and a fruitcake bake off!. This local group brought back the Fruitcake Toss to the heart of Manitou. It all started in 1995 with locals throwing fruitcakes in the park, and 20 years later, we are going old school! Events will be pure feats of strength, and talent (and balance and taste!)
