We are currently in the planning stages for the annual Vail America Days celebration but are planning for a return to a traditional parade. More information will be posted here soon!

The night sky will also be lit up again but in a 21st century way! We are choreographing a drone show over Vail Mountain to replace our traditional fireworks. Don’t miss this incredible show.
