EDWARDS — Kick off the Fourth of July weekend with the return of the Riverwalk First Fridays at the Backyard Amphitheater in Edwards today at 5 p.m.
There will be free live music by The Burroughs as well as vendor booths featuring Crazy Mountain beer, wine, as well as food from Taco Rico and Loaded Joe’s.
Music kicks off at 6 p.m. with Colorado-grown powerhouse The Burroughs. The nine-piece ensemble touts itself as “sweaty soul” and includes a four-piece horn section. The Burroughs follow the musical vein of Ottis Redding and Ray Charles, and their thunderous performances include an energetic selection of crowd-pleasing favorites as well as danceable originals.
Picnics are Welcome
The June Riverwalk First Fridays concert featuring fellow Colorado favorite Hazel Miller drew the largest crowd in the history of the event — hundreds of dancers, picnickers and people passing by ranging from families with young children to couples, work groups and visitors of all ages.
Picnics are welcome at Riverwalk First Fridays, but no pets are allowed and the event is non-smoking. Riverwalk First Fridays are presented by Alpine Bank and Kaiser Permanente. The event is a project of KZYR 97.7 The Zephyr and Vail Jazz.
