JazzAspen Snowmass wraps up the long and lazy summer with another music-filled extravaganza, this Labor Day Weekend. The 2010 Festival runs September 3-5, featuring Wilco, Glenn Frey & Joe Walsh, The Black Crowes, Court Yard Hounds (with Martie Maguire & Emily Robison of the Dixie Chick fame) and, at long last, the famed and sometimes elusive, not often seen in concert, Lynyrd Skynyrd. It's a Southern Rock theme on Sunday, while the inimitable beats of New Master Sounds will entertain on the early side, Friday night; get to the grass early to soak up all the weekend's talents!
It's an annual tradition, the best of the beach in the heart of the mountains. The Motherlode Volleyball Classic, North America's biggest beach doubles volleyball tournament, comes to Koch Park in Aspen this Labor Day Weekend. This year, for the first time ever, beach volleyball's latest stars on the rise will compete, as well, showcasing the next wave of talent in the sport. Watch the action and be a part of the excitement;pull up a camp chair, bring a picnic and enjoy some high sports action. For more info, www.motherlodevolleyball.com.
