The fifth season of Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park’s Music on the Mountain Concert Series wraps up Saturday with The Missing Link Band. Guests can enjoy the concert, drink specials and a free tram ride up and down the mountain in exchange for cans of food for the LIFT-UP food pantry or a donation to the American Red Cross to assist with flood relief efforts.
“One of the things we love most about living in Glenwood Springs is how the community comes together to support those in need,” said Steve Beckley, who owns Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park with his wife, Jeanne. “As of last weekend, our community has donated more than 30,000 cans of food since the series started back in 2009. That’s really amazing when you think about it. This week, we thought we’d reach out and help our neighbors on the Front Range who are being impacted by the floods.”
Donations of any amount will be accepted. Checks should be made payable to the American Red Cross with “Colorado Floods” written in the memo line. The Red Cross provides shelter, food, health and mental health services to help families and entire communities get back on their feet.
The park will begin accepting donations for tram rides beginning at 4 p.m., and The Missing Link Band will play from 6-10 p.m. The only group to have performed during all five Music on the Mountain seasons, the band’s blend of dance rock, funk and groove is always a crowd favorite. The band incorporates blues, rock, country, rhythm and blues, and dance music into its shows, featuring Paul Barker on bass, Erik McPherson on guitar and vocals, Nick Kuhlmann on drums, and Holly Guerin and Kimberly Kwiatkowski on vocals. Perri’s Collision is the sponsor of this week’s concert.
The Lookout Grille and Snack Shack will be open for dinner and refreshments; drink specials including $3 glasses of wine, $3.50 Coors Lights and Coronas, and $4 well drinks, will be available in the plaza.
The park will be open until 10 p.m. for the concert, with the last tram ride up at 9:30 p.m. The outdoor rides and attractions will close at dusk. No outside drinks allowed. For more information about the park, visit www.GlenwoodCaverns.com or call 800-530-1635 or 970-945-4228, ext. 0.
