The summer season is in full swing so the time is now for you to start planning for your Telluride vacation rental. Telluride is one of the top summer destinations year after year with exciting attractions and activities to enjoy in the area. Telluride is also home to many different events including a Fourth of July celebration. The Fourth of July holiday is the perfect excuse you need to come to visit Telluride for the first or tenth time. Take a look at what kind of festivities and activities you can enjoy for the holiday:
Rundola: Telluride’s Fourth of July Race
Many holidays throughout the year are celebrated with an exciting 5K or race. Telluride hosts its own Fourth of July race, the Rundola. This uphill foot race is the perfect way to get a sweat in before the festivities start later in the day. While the Rundola is only one mile in length the uphill race will make it more difficult than what you may be used to. Racers will be running parallel to the gondola so you will have plenty of views to take in. Do not miss out on Rundola taking place on July 4th.
Fourth of July Parade
Most cities across the country will be offering a Fourth of July parade to celebrate our nation’s birthday and Telluride is no different. Each year the annual Fourth of July Parade is put on in downtown Telluride. This annual event has been voted “The Best Small-Town Parade in America”. This treasured event is always eagerly awaited by locals and visitors alike. The event will have a variety of decorated floats along with food vendors. Come see this incredible patriotic event taking place at 11:00 AM on July 4th.
Red, White & Blues Fourth of July Celebration
This year Mountain Village Town will be teaming up with Telluride for an incredible celebration with the Red, White & Blue Fourth of July Celebration. This free event is perfect for all ages to enjoy. Expect to find plenty of exciting activities including live blues music and plenty of vendors on hand. The Red, White & Blues Fourth of July Celebration will take place on July 3rd and 4th up in Mountain Village. Although make sure to note that the area is in a stage 1 fire band so there won’t be any campfires, fireworks, or charcoal grills at this time.
Telluride will also have other exciting events going on around the Fourth of July for you to enjoy as well. This includes MusicFest, a series of chamber music concerts taking place from June 25th to July 3rd. MusicFest brings some of the country’s finest classical music artists to Telluride for intimate performances held in a private residence.
