Fruitcake Toss in Manitou Springs Colorado

Fruitcake Toss in Manitou Springs Colorado

Yes, there is such a thing as a "fruitcake toss". The small quirky town of Manitou Springs Colorado hosts this local event every year. It's even been featured on the Travel Channel.
This even features folks hurling fruitcakes through the air via brute force, trebuchets, gun, or canon. All ages from little tikes on up participate in different categories. Bring your own stale fruitcake, or you can rent one for $1.00.
2011 celebrates it's 16th Annual Great Fruitcake Toss in Manitou Springs on Saturday, January 8th, with festivities beginning at 10:00am. Click Here to visit their official website.

Need lodging in Manitou Springs for the event while you're here either participating or enjoying watching them? Consider staying at the Rocky Mountain Lodge & Cabins, just 10 minutes from Manitou Springs, nestled in the mountains at Pikes Peak. Rent one of our Colorado Cabins or enjoy a little more pampering in our Colorado Bed and Breakfast Lodge, and feast on our signature 3-course breakfast before heading out to hurl that fruitcake.
