Highlight of the summer

“Want a Great Sunday?” asked The Aspen Times in June 1984. “Yep, you locals know it. Summer isn’t officially here until you usher it right proper. And this year the traditional kickoff takes place at noon on July 8 at the edge of the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness area. It’s the 16th annual concert and picnic benefiting the Aspen Camp School for the Deaf and it promises to be yet another fun-filled day of family entertainment and good food……This year’s concert features groups including Buck Deane and the Bucking Strings, KT and the Grown Men, High Country Music, The Aspen All Stars, Twirp, Anderson and the Country Cannonball and many other special guests….” This image taken by Chris Cassatt pictures the concert crowd against Mount Daly in the background.
