Free food, fun and music to mark Glenwood’s 4th of July celebration

The City of Glenwood Springs will host an Independence Day celebration, sans fireworks, from 5-9 p.m. Thursday, July 4, at the Glenwood Springs Community Center. Titled, “The Sky is the Limit,” the celebration is free and open to the public.

“This is a great opportunity for families and tourist to escape the heat and enjoy free food, fun, music, in-line skating, and activities for children. You don’t have to leave Glenwood to celebrate the Red, White, and Blue,” said Kathleen Milbrath, adult coordinator for the Community Center.

The evening’s schedule is as follows:

5-8 p.m. – Free in-line skating party; inflatable rides in the gymnasium, including Moon Bounce, Velcro Wall, and Sumo Wrestling; free hot dogs, beans, and slaw; free gymnasium time.

6-7 p.m. – Kite flying contest with categories and prizes.

6-9 p.m. – Live music by four-time Local’s Choice winners for Best Local Band, The Dags.

7:30 p.m. – Flag-raising ceremony at the Community Center.

To volunteer, call Kathleen Milbrath at 384-6312.
