Fourth of July Steamboat Style

Posted by Jon Wade on Wednesday, July 1st, 2015 at 11:00pm.

 For over 100 years Steamboat Springs Colorado has been celebrating the Fourth of July in true Western form. From our 112th annual Cowboy Roundup Days to the Parade down Lincoln Avenue, we celebrate things a little differently. Where else can you have a Pancake Breakfast, run a 1/2 Marathon, Nordic skate down the center of Main Street and launch yourself off the 50 meter ski jump, all by noon! This weekend is one our favorite weekends of the year. The trails are in perfect condition to ride or hike and the river is in prime fishing condition. Feeling lazy, float the afternoon away and spend the heat of the day in the "C hole" swimming and relaxing. There are plenty of fun activities to do this weekend and we can't wait to celebrate our Independence Day. As the sun sets on the Yampa Valley, take in the Rodeo and get ready for one of Colorado's most spectacular fireworks displays. The Borden's know how to put on a show that you'll remember for years to come.
