An Old Fashioned Fourth of July in Ouray, 2017

The Fourth of July in Ouray is always a grand celebration. From parades and water fights, to barbecues and free concerts in the ark, there are few places that take having fun so seriously.

The weather was on our side again this year, so we expect yet another epic firework display. As the Volunteer Fire Department fires illuminations into the sky above town, there are few places you will see such an awesome show!

Ouray Mountain Air Music Series this June, 2017

Posted by Maria Ziemba on Tue, Jun 06, 2017 @02:15 PM

Last week was the first free concert in the park this year, and despite a little rain, it was a marvelous success!

Once the storm ended, those brave enough to wait out the downpour were rewarded with an amazing rainbow display, seeming to embrace the park and complement the awesome music as it echoed through our tiny box canyon. Jessica Hernandez and the Deltas followed the opening band iZCALLi, and the music, coupled with the beauty of the San Juans was supreme.
