ASPEN ” The CBS “Early Show” will broadcast live from downtown Aspen on Thursday as part of its Great American Vacation roadtrip across the country.

Anyone interested in watching host Dave Price in action, along with guest actress Emily Procter of the “CSI Miami” television crime drama, should head to Wagner Park in downtown Aspen from 5 to 7 a.m. (hey, it’s not called the “Early Show” for nothing). Spectating is free and one audience member will win a “dream vacation,” according to the show’s promoters.

The show’s vacation series kicked off in Key West, Fla. and has since visited Outer Banks, N.C.; Savannah, Ga.; Niagara Falls, N.Y.; South Padre Island, Texas; and Mount Rushmore, S.D. Aspen is the next stop before the show broadcasts from Mackinac Island, Mich. and Bar Harbor, Maine.
