Aspen Square Daily News
Here at Aspen Square we are delighted with our current weather pattern of bright sunny mornings and brief afternoon showers. Our flowers love their daily "drink" and our surrounding mountains remain green and dotted with wildflowers. With so much of the country experiencing unusually hot and dry weather this summer, our guests are thrilled to be reminded to bring a jacket for our typically cool evenings and early mornings. If that sounds good to you, come and get in on the "jacket weather" soon!
Tomorrow's epic endurance bike race, the 6th annual 12 Hours of Snowmass, is an important fundraiser for the Aspen Youth Center. Individuals and teams of up to eight people will test their endurance as they ride as many laps as they can up and down the trails of Snowmass Mountain ski area. Beginning at 7am, the riders will compete until 7pm, with the winner receiving a $2500 purse. To learn more about the Aspen Youth Center and the race, visit www.aspenyouthcenter.org.
A glance at this week's calendar gives us a snapshot of summer in Aspen, showing the diversity of events and activities our guests at Aspen Square enjoy so much. Today the Aspen Ice Garden is hosting the Aspen Antiques, Jewelry and Fine Arts Fair from 10am to 6pm. The Aspen Music Festival is presenting multiple events daily, Theatre Aspen is launching its children's play "How I Became a Pirate" and Komen Aspen is running its annual Race for The Cure on Saturday, July 14. And that's just the start. Did we mention that the weather is absolutely perfect?
