Celebrate the 4th in Eagle County

On July 3rd, Avon hosts a spectacular fireworks display set to patriotic music at Nottingham Park. It’s starts about 9:45pm, but if you want to grab a plot for your blanket…you better get there a couple hours early. There is plenty of food and entertainment to pass the time. This year we settled in by the playground and enjoyed a view of sunset over the lake. The fireworks show does not disappoint. One word of caution…it’s a huge crowd. Don’t plan to get out of there quickly!

One of our favorite family traditions is the America Days parade in Vail. It starts at 10am on the 4th of July. We claim a piece of curb long before the parade starts to ensure the kids will catch plenty of candy and have a clear view.
