Aspen Square Daily News
It's a gorgeous day here in Aspen and we want to take a moment to wish all of our friends and family a happy, healthy and fun 4th of July! The festivities kicked off early with the start of the Boogie's Buddy 5 race and the bouncy houses are still installed at the corner of Hunter and Cooper, just down the block. Have a great day!
Before the 4th of July dawns tomorrow, visitors to Aspen can take a culture break tonight at the Aspen Music Festival. The world-renowned Takacs Quartet, will present a concert of string quartet music in Harris Hall at 8pm.
