Summer Events in Frisco: Part Two (July, 2015)

Posted by: admin May 29th, 2015

July in Frisco Colorado often serves as a respite for all of the Front Rangers looking for a relief from the heat of Denver and other cities along the Front Range. With a 60-degree average temperature (feeling much hotter when the sun’s out), July is the hottest month in our mountain town, but really nothing to write home about. It is a wonderful time of year to visit our Frisco hotel because in addition to the great weather, there is plenty going on in the month of July. Here is a sampling of what to sink your teeth into during your July vacation in Frisco.

Frisco’s Fabulous 4th of July – Saturday, July 4, 2015

While there is typically no excuse needed to explode fireworks, on the 4th of July the town of Frisco’s transforms into a patriotic party. Start your day with a pancake breakfast at the Frisco Community Building and end your festivities with a beautiful display of fireworks over the Frisco Marina. Sandwiched in between is an authentic, small town parade, the Kids Fishing Derby at Meadow Creek Pond and tons of live music including the Summit Concert Band and Guild of Ages at the Historic Park Gazebo and The Long Run (Eagles Tribute band) at the Marina to kick off the fireworks.

Frisco’s Founders Day – Sunday, July 5, 2015

Discover how Frisco came to be with simulated gold panning, live burro rides, live music, refreshments, interpretive tours and costumed reenactments on this continuation of the 4th of July weekend in Frisco. Celebrate the town’s history at the Frisco Historic Park & Museum from 10am to 5pm and experience the musical string band stylings of Local Folk in the gazebo.

Mountain Goat Kids Trail Running Series Races – Tuesdays throughout July

With four races slated for every Tuesday night at 5:45pm throughout the month of July, the Mountain Goat Kids Trail Running Series is a great event for the entire family to enjoy. Taking place at the Frisco Adventure Park, the races are open for kids 13 and under and distances range from .5 mile to a 5k. After the kiddos receive their finisher gift and slice of pizza, families are encouraged to hang around and take advantage of all of the free activities – horseshoes, the Frisco Bike Park, Frisco Skate Park, Peak One Disc Golf Course and more. Don’t forget to stick around for the free movie inside the Day Lodge to end you evening.

2nd Annual Frisco Triathlon

If you’re looking for a new challenge this summer, the Frisco Triathlon is just the thing for you. With stand-up-paddle (SUP) boarding, mountain biking and trail running, this unique twist on a triathlon is open to all ability and skill levels. The SUP leg (3k) will kick off the event at the Frisco Bay Marina as contestants make their way across the Dillon Reservoir to the Pine Cove Campground. From there they will transition to the mountain bike leg (15k) before embarking on the trail running portion of the race (5k).

Courage Classic – July 18-20, 2015

Starting and ending at scenic Copper Mountain, this three-day event brings together over 2,000 riders to ultimately raise money for the Children’s Hospital Colorado Foundation. The Courage Classic accomplishes more than just conquering challenging mountain passes; it benefits the kids in your Colorado community. In 2014, this three-day ride raised a record-breaking $2.9 million for nearly 200,000 patients at Children’s Hospital Colorado. Whether you decide to ride or volunteer, just know that every little bit helps in this worthy cause.

All of the above events are easily accessible from our Frisco bed & breakfast – an added bonus to staying at the Frisco Lodge this summer!
