Mountain Mayhem: Fun on the Fourth

Aspen was filled to the gills on the Fourth of July for a celebration of epic proportions. At 6 a.m. the first of several cannon blasts shot from Smuggler Mine, a longstanding tradition marking America’s birthday. The 5-mile Boogie’s Buddy Race drew scores of runners to toe the line at 8 a.m. and circumnavigate town for charity. Fighter planes flew overhead at the start to the parade, which wound its way through the streets starting and ending by Paepcke Park. Concerts, private parties, mountaintop festivities and more rounded out the afternoon activities well into the evening to wrap up another memorable Independence Day in Aspen.
