For over 100 years Steamboat Springs, Colorado has celebrated Independence Day in true western fashion. This is a special holiday and Steamboat does it right with a hometown parade which ends in a big dance party in the street.
Events like the Pioneer Days Block Party, featuring a free concert and Root Beer Floats for the kids, and the Ranch Rodeo where local ranches compete against one another are proof Steamboat’s western roots are alive and well.
Don’t miss the pancake breakfast, take a float down the Yampa River to cool off, and head over to one of the biggest nights of the summer Pro Rodeo Series.
After the rodeo, keep your seat and watch the sky fill up with the beautiful colors of one of the biggest firework shows in Colorado.
