Aspen Square Daily News
Aspen Eco Fest returns to the corners of Hopkins and Hyman this weekend, June 7 and 8. Now in its 5th year, Eco Fest celebrates everything green and sustainable, with more than 85 vendors presenting Colorado-made, local products, earth-conscious clothing and a food court. Don't forget your recyclable shopping bags!
It's a beautiful early summer day here in Aspen and this will be a great afternoon for a serene Roaring Fork River Float at the scenic North Star Preserve east of Aspen. From 5 to 8pm, participants can float along the gentle streams of the Roaring Fork and enjoy some of the most important wildlife habitat in the upper valley. Representatives from the Pitkin County Open Space and Roaring Fork Conservancy will discuss the history of the open space and recent restoration activities as well as help you spot the wildlife in the area. Bring your own flotation device and boating option.
Tomorrow, May 31, is a big day in the lives of our local high school seniors as they graduate from Aspen High School. Graduation ceremonies always take place at the Benedict Music Tent and are the first summer event at the Tent each year. Congratulations, kids!
