It’s that time of year again! The crowds are coming to town for some holiday shenanigans and our Independence (okay, or maybe BBQ and beer) is on the minds of everyone. The water levels are fantastic right now and there’s no better way to see Vail and the festivities than on Gore Creek as parade hooligans pass by. The annual 4th of July Vail parade is next week so expect town favorites and companies from throughout the valley to be participating in the holiday bash. If you’ve never been, on the morning of the 4th there is a parade from Golden Peak to Lionshead Village full of locals, floats, dancing men with lawn chairs, and candy galore! For our little town of Vail this is a big deal so be sure to find a spot in town early in the morning. After the parade, find yourself a BBQ or a raft to hop in down the river. Another way to commemorate our independence and transport you to the Wild Wild West circa Revolutionary War period is to join us for horseback riding and sporting clays. At our private 6,000 acre ranch, explore the backcountry in the saddle and learning how to shoot a gun… two great ways to celebrate American history! After your activities, on the evening of the 4th there are fireworks launched up high in the sky over Vail. If you’re here, welcome to our quaint little mountain celebration. The Sage family would love to spend the 4th with you! Call us today at 970.476.3700 so we can celebrate with you!
