Littleton, CO — Mackintosh Academy’s 40th Anniversary Fall Festival and Open House will take place Friday, September 22 from 4 to 7pm at the school’s Littleton Campus (7018 South Prince St. Littleton, CO 80120). This free, family-friendly event is designed to celebrate the school’s 40-year history nurturing Colorado’s bright minds and to thank the community for its enduring support.
Events will include: live music, lawn games, student-led campus tours, bulb planting, donkey petting, and “Pin the Feather on the Peacock,” – the latter being a nod to the 1970’s when donkeys and peacocks resided on the property alongside students! Light refreshments will also be served. (See detailed schedule of events and RSVP here)
