Next Saturday, July 14, Komen Aspen presents its annual Race for the Cure. The scenic race winds from Rio Grande Park through Aspen's West End and along the Rio Grande Trail - a beautiful way to spend a Saturday morning and a worthy cause to support.

Happy 4th of July to our guests and friends! Activities abound in town today and the weather is cooperating with light breezes, warm temperatures and light clouds. The annual Boogie's race took off at 8 and we're anticipating the community parade at noon, a variety of picnics afterward, the free band concert at 4pm and dancing in the streets until 8pm. It's a great day to be visiting (or living in) Aspen!
