What's better than a Candy Cane Festival?
Oh....maybe a festival that also has Hanukkah geld, gluten- and sugar-free candy, face painting, trolley rides, cookie making, a photobooth (so you can take silly photos with your friends). Of course, there's Santa and caroling...signaling the beginning of the Christmas season.
It is at Hammond's Candies (a Denver institution for more than 90 years) whose sweet treats have been praised by Martha Stewart and featured in the Neiman Marcus and the Williams Sonoma catalogs. Try the chocolate-filled candy canes. They are especially good.
But, free factory tours and free candy samples are only available in Denver.
