Aspen Square Daily News
Aspen is a small town and we love to support our high school events. This weekend's Homecoming kicks off tomorrow, September 25, with an old-fashioned bonfire at the corner of Galena Street and Cooper Avenue - across from Paradise Bakery and just down the street from the Aspen Square. Come out to support our high school and have some fun with the kids. The bonfire and celebration begins at 6pm. For details call (970) 925-6248.
Our famous aspen trees are starting their annual transition from green to gold, just in time for this weekend's Golden Leaf Half Marathon. The scenic 13.1-mile course takes runners from Snowmass Village on mountain trails and roads to the middle of Aspen. The race is on September 21.
