Vail event planners seek help

Vail, CO Colorado

VAIL ” The Vail Commission of Special Events, which helps to plan and oversee special events in Vail, Colorado, is looking for volunteers and fresh ideas for next ski season.

Planners want to provide entertainment and events in the village beyond just skiing, and the events should be organized and well-advertised for visitors, said Sybill Navas, coordinator for the commission.

Vail business owners who have ideas or volunteers who want to organize the effort should contact Laurie Asmussen at 970-477-3699.

The commission organizes events such as the town’s tree lightings, “Skate with Santa,” and this winter’s village dog parade.

Some business owners said that they would be on board with a coordinated effort for holiday events, while others have said they also want to see the village livened up with some music and more activity.
