Several local restaurants as well as independent grillers are invited to yet again participate in the barbecue contest going on all day. Be sure to bring your appetite as you taste a variety of fabulous treats from some of the best grill masters in Ouray County!

fireworks in ouray coAs everyone knows, this year we did not have our Fourth of July fireworks display due to dry weather. Ironically, it started to rain on the Fourth of July. Southwest Colorado has been extremely fortunate the past couple of months; with beautiful days full of sunshine, followed by evening showers to keep everything green. In 'light' of that, the Ouray Volunteer Fire Department has decided to help the town celebrate by setting off a fireworks display this weekend for the Grillin n Chillin Festival! Each evening at dark, look to the skies for a spectacular fireworks display. The perfect way to end a perfect weekend!

Of course, this is a family event, and the town has not forgotten the kids. A zip-line will be set up for the kids to enjoy in addition to a plethora of activities geared toward family fun. Not to mention, the city pool is right at the park, and what could be more fun than a soak and swim with the sounds of great music in the background?

The Grillin-n-ChillinFestival will be held at Fellin Park next to the City Hot Springs Pool on Saturday, August 25, 2012 from 2:00 pm to 8:00 pm. See you there!
