They say time flies when you are having fun and that is what has been happening in Aspen and now we are already into the month of July. We want summer to go on forever so we can squeeze in everything there is to do! Our big fourth of July celebration is behind us and it was a beautiful weekend ending with an amazing fireworks display in the evening. Our small town was jumping with activity and actually, it is still going on.
The Aspen Music Festival is going strong with concerts until Sunday, August 21. The theme of the festival this year is an Invitation to Dance pointing to use of dance elements in musical works. Many free concerts are offered so be sure to take advantage of them. The festival offers music on Aspen Mountain every Saturday from 1-2 p.m. in an extremely scenic setting.
Also on Aspen Mountain, a blue grass band plays every Sunday at the top of the mountain from 12-3 p.m. Come enjoy lunch on the large deck with the awesome views and listen to the toe tapping music. You can visit aspensnowmass.com for more events on the mountain.
Theatre Aspen is performing three different shows this summer including the fun and exciting musical Mama Mia. You will love this show in such an intimate setting. Their website is theatreaspen.org if you want more information.
We have had enough rain this summer to make all those gorgeous wildflowers grow and show all their colors. So if you are hiking in the mountains, it will be a treat. In addition to the flowers, you will witness some incredible views no matter where you hike.
And in addition to the rain, we have had some nice warm weather for all the crops to grow. The farmers’ market is every Saturday in downtown Aspen where you can shop for all your favorite vegetables and fruits along with many crafts and specialty items.
If summer doesn’t work for you, remember how spectacular our fall is with the autumn colors. We hope you will be part of the Aspen summer/fall experience. You won’t forget it!
We hope to see you soon!
