Happy July 4th! Telluride Style
July 3, 2014
Howdy! Wow ~ is it July 4th already?! This is the most amazing time of year. The streets of our stunning box canyon will be filled with locals & visitors, all here to celebrate Independence Day.
Folks say about 4000 people will line our main street. All decked out in red, white & blue. They will watch people (and pets) riding decorated bikes, floats, motorcycles & marching….everyone with giant smiles from ear to ear. Here’s a peek at July 4th! Telluride Style.
The anticipation is huge. People wait all year for this stunning all American parade…
Martha Stewart Living has even been here to share in the fun…
I wake super early & lay out our tarp & chairs to mark the spot where we will watch the home town floats cruise by.
We get on line super early to claim our table at the New Sheridan Chop House for brunch.
My kids take part in their hand crafted float they all design with Eco Adventures (an amazing summer camp program!)
The littles are adorable!!
The come totally decked out!
As do the pets…
There is an airplane fly over that always sends cold chills through the crowd. A great way to kick off the festivities…
Folks munch on all kinds of street side nibbles…
After the parade the local volunteer firemen host a suer tasty BBQ in Town Park.
In the evening we are graced with a stunning fireworks presentation, also put on by our firemen. We couldn’t blast them last year because of wild fires. But this year ~ we have a 2 year stash! Oh yeahhhh.
Have a wonderful & safe 4th!
