Among other things, the annual event celebrates region’s rotten roots
FORT LUPTON — The fall harvest season has always a cause for celebration. Even going back 107 years ago, Orello E. Frick thought so.
Frick was the founder of the Silver State Creamery and Cheese factory, which later become the Fort Lupton Canning Factory, an industry that helped shape the city. One year, 1908 to be exact, when fall came around, Frick decided to have a party.
