Manitou Springs Fruitcake Toss


Ever wonder what to do with those leftover fruitcakes that your favorite relative or employer gives you for Christmas? Here's the perfect way to get rid of them while having some fun.

Manitou Springs hosts an annual event every January called the Great Fruitcake Toss. You can bring your own fruitcakes, or buy one for $1.00. Then you can participate in one of the many categories whether you want to hurl them through the air with brute force of muscle, build an elaborate trebuchet, gun or canon. It's loads of fun!

The 15th Annual Manitou Springs Fruitcake Toss will be held on Saturday, January 9, 2010. Festivities begin at 10:00am at the Manitou Springs High School Track 401 El Monte Place.

And you can stay at any of our Manitou Springs Bed and Breakfast Inns or Cabin Rentals while enjoying this fabulous Colorado event. Visit our website "Authentic Bed and Breakfast Inns and Cottages of the Pikes Peak Region" to choose from 15 different B&Bs, Cabins and Cottages throughout the Pikes Peak area, including Manitou Springs, Colorado Springs, Cascade, and Woodland Park.
See you at the Fruitcake Toss!
