Aspen Crunch's 4th of July Playlist

Fourth of July in Aspen can be described as hectic, an adventure, a party, and a chill afternoon all at the same time. 
So, without further ado, here is your guide to Fourth of July in Aspen. 

8:00 A.M. 

Wake up, and get ready to race! Slip on those speedy sneakers and head over to the classic Boogie’s Buddy Program five mile race. Out-of-breath mornings not your cup of tea? Well, there’s a one mile walk you can participate in. We hear there are lots of cute dogs. 

10:00 A.M. 

Head over to Paradise Bakery and indulge in some delicious pastries. It’s only going to be around for a couple more years so make it count! 
BONUS: If you’re lucky, stick around and listen to the Aspen Music Festival Students play some sweet classical tunes on Paradise Corner. 

11:00 A.M. 

It’s time for the parade! Find a nice spot to sit, stand, or dance, don’t forget to eat lots of candy and get soaked by water balloons and fire hoses (the best way to cool off). 

12:00 P.M. 

It’s time for lunch— finding a table in town will be a challenge so you should either: 
a) bring a lunch from home and eat it in Wagner Park
(don’t forget your Aspen Crunch)
b) go to the AVSC picnic at Koch Park and get some burgers and dogs 

1:00 P.M. 

Now that you’re satiated, head over to Stillwater and hang out by the beach or the jumping bridge. If you’re feeling sporty, grab a tube, kayak, SUP, or non-motorized watercraft of choice and head for a float. Put in at the Wildwood School and don’t forget to take a cold dip! 

5:00 P.M. 

A nap might be in order now ;)

7:30 P.M.

Go for a hike up Smuggler and admire the glorious views of town. Stick around long enough to catch the sunset if you can! (and don’t forget a headlamp) 

9:00 P.M. 

New York Pizza anyone? Peek in and time it right so the line isn’t crazy long. Bring friends and CASH. 

10:00 P.M. 

Head home and go to sleep. 
Go dance at one of the many bars and clubs in town or watch the drone/fireworks show if there is one to be watched. Bonus points if you find some live music! 

2:15 A.M. 

Last bus leaves from Rubey Park! Don’t miss it.
