It's been another huge success at the Vail America Days 4th of July festivities and and I am so thankful to have been able to return to my hometown to celebrate. Years of celebrating the 4th of July on the beaches of California, on the Mississippi in Wisconsin and this year I realized that you just can't top the 4th of July in the Rockies. The small town feel, the beautiful setting, the local shops and charming atmosphere have fused the 4th of July and Vail together in my mind. After being away for the last few years, I was ecstatic to witness the unbelievable Salute to the USA in Avon, Colorado's biggest fireworks show.
The Ford Amphitheater is hosting Vail's annual 4th of July celebration, "A Salute to Freedom", with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. Tickets go on sale Thursday at 8am and cost $15 for wonderful pavilion seats. General admission lawn seats are free. The concert begins at 2pm on July 4th.
