HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA! It is always one of our favorite holiday weekends, with so many activities and special events it is hard to choose what to do! The weekend was a fun and active one. Jazz Aspen hosted singer Natalie Cole on Saturday night, and the Aspen Music Festival began its 8-week season as well. Sunday saw the July 4th parade wind through town starting at noon, and there was a terrific band concert at 7:30 pm that night -- FREE! Fireworks, always a favorite, exploded high over Aspen Mountain. In between there were activities, a street fair, the Saturday Market and so much more. What a GREAT weekend it was! What a fun way to celebrate our nation's birthday!
