Posted by: admin June 25th, 2015
Heading up to the high country for our nation’s birthday? Planning your stay at our Frisco bed & breakfast? If you answered yes to one or both of these questions, then this blog post is for you. Here is your definitive guide to what is going on for the 4th of July in Frisco Colorado.
8:00am – Pancake Breakfast
Start your holiday weekend off the right way with a pancake breakfast (benefitting Team Summit) at the Frisco Community Building at 8am … fill your belly and your heart by celebrating a good cause.
9:00am – Kids Fishing Derby
After loading up on carbs, grab the kiddos and head on over to the stocked pond at Meadow Creek Park for the Kids Fishing Derby from 9 – 11am. This free event, open to kids 15 and under, will test every child’s meddle as the children that catch the three longest fish will get “bragging rights” in the Summit Daily newspaper. Every child that participates will also receive a ribbon with a special fish pin.
10:00am – Summit Concert Band
From 10 – 11am the Summit Concert Band – a community-based group of musicians – will be offering their musical stylings to 4th of July crowds at the Historic Park Gazebo on Main Street Frisco.

12:30pm – Fabulous Fourth of July Parade
Taking place on Main Street from Madison Ave. to 6th Ave., the Fourth of July Parade will roll right past the front doors of the Frisco Lodge. Main Street Frisco transforms into a patriotic celebration with parade floats vying for a bevy of cash prizes and trophies in one of several categories.
The Fabulous Fourth of July Parade will also showcase the creative and patriotic creations of kids with the annual bike parade. After registering, kids will vie for the top design by a panel of judges before joining the parade.
1:30pm – Live Music
After taking in the festivities of the parade, take a stroll over to the Historic Park Gazebo for more live music from Guild of Ages. This melodic hard rock band from Denver incorporates strong guitars, large vocal harmonies and keyboards to their unique sound.
3:30pm – Interactive Drum Circle with Peak Rhythms
If your musical sensations haven’t had enough yet, on Main Street between 3rd and 4th Avenues, there will be an interactive drum circle with Peak Rhythms. This group drumming and rhythm program’s mission is to empower and unite people through rhythm, specializing in group drumming, drum circle and rhythm events that can accommodate groups of up to 1,000 and more. Within minutes, your group of friends or family will be creating rhythms and making music.
7:15pm – Live Music at the Frisco Bay Marina
Tired yet? We sure hope not as the evening hours kick off with two hours (7:15-9:15pm) of live music from the Eagles Tribute Band The Long Run at the Frisco Bay Marina. Laden with 4 and 5 part harmonies, The Long Run reproduces the Eagles’ hits with an organic 1970’s sound, multi-instrumentalists, and a lead-singing drummer.
9:30pm – Fireworks Over the Marina
‘Nuff said. One of the most majestic fireworks display in the high country, Frisco’s fireworks explode with all of their magnificence over the Frisco Bay.
Wow what a day! Just think you can experience all of this without ever having to leave the Town of Frisco, and not traveling more than 5 minutes from our Frisco hotel. As you can see, a stay at the Frisco Lodge positions you perfectly for the picture-perfect 4th of July celebration in the Rockies. By the way, did you know that we are a 2015 Certificate of Excellence award winner from TripAdvisor? Come see what you’re missing.
