Avon, CO – Due to the dry July conditions, the Salute to the USA firework display was postponed and will be the center of a community event, aptly titled July in January. On Friday, January 25th the Town of Avon will host a community celebration from 5:00 - 8:00 p.m. in Harry A. Nottingham Park. The event will include free food and drink, live music, ice skating and a Chilly Chili Cookoff.
Rocky Mountain Tacos will serve free tacos, and free beer has been donated by Vail Brewing Company and Bonfire Brewing. Local band The Runaway Grooms will play a free show on the Avon Performance Pavilion stage at 5:30 p.m., and the Avon Recreation Department will offer free ice skate rentals during the event. Warming towers and fire pits will keep event-goers warm while they await the largest, most spectacular fireworks show Colorado has to offer, scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m.
All are welcome to compete in the first Chilly Chili Cookoff, which requires advanced registration, and boasts both bragging rights and a cash prize. Entries will be limited, so sign up early to participate.
Taco, beer and skate rental quantities are limited, so please come early!
