The annual 4th of July festival Vail America Days is a great place to escape the heat and spend time with the family celebrating the Fourth of July in a beautiful Vail, Colorado summer.
For 2013, America Days will continue to celebrate Vail's 50th Anniversary. The celebration lasts four days, featuring fireworks, the classic town parade through the pedestrian streets of Vail Village, live music, children's entertainment and an open-air street festival atmosphere.
Entertainment will include the parade, forest-safe low altitude fireworks, and live music throughout the weekend featuring family friendly performances, Jazz, and the annual Patriotic Concert* from the Bravo! Vail with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. For the family, a large array of children’s activities and multi-day festival style attractions in town and all that Vail summer has to offer on mountain including both Gondolas, Adventure Ridge Activities, hiking, biking and more.
Vail’s 50th Anniversary themed 4th of July parade will begin at Golden Peak at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday July 4 and will wind its way through the villages, ending in Lionshead. The long route makes it easy to pick a spot to watch with the family!
