CRESTED BUTTE

CRESTED BUTTE

Crested Butte Parade

Crested Butte is another town known for its local pride which, unsurprisingly, parallels its national patriotism. The day commences with a parade, followed by live music in town. Two- to three-year-olds then strap up for the Strider Cup, a pedal-free bike race that’s always a crowd pleaser. 

The momentum continues with a sawdust coin hunt, hot-dog-eating contest, and pie-eating contest. Try not to stand too close to the participants—the dogs and pies may attempt an encore.

Hours of live music highlight the afternoon in Crested Butte, leading up to a fireworks display on the mountain. As of right now the fireworks are still a go, but with the recent extremity of Colorado's fires, nothing is certain.
