The infamous tomato-throwing contest is just one of the reasons this event has become a popular and memorable annual get together for locals. Another annual tradition in Brighton is winding through long, corn-lined trails at the Murray Maize Maze. The 15 acre corn maze, shaped like two wolves and a bear, is a very popular attraction, especially in the fall months. Brighton is also a haven for outdoor purists. There are numerous spots from which you can enjoy fishing, jogging, wildlife viewing, and even some horseback riding. The Barr Lake area and the Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory have been referred to as a “birder’s paradise.”
