After a two-year hiatus, the old-fashioned Fourth of July parade returned to the streets of Aspen on Monday. The long-standing tradition was canceled in 2020 because of the pandemic before being brought back in 2021 with a different format that didn’t include the standard parade affair.

The 2022 version looked much as it did pre-pandemic, with the downtown streets lined with festive parade watchers for the hour-long event.
