Vail to sponsor annual neighborhood picnics

Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

VAIL, Colorado – Mark your calendars for the town of Vail’s 11th annual neighborhood picnic series, June 29 at Bighorn Park and Aug. 24 at Ellefson Park. Each picnic will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and free food and drink will be provided by the town on a first-come, first-served basis. The picnics provide residents an opportunity to offer comments and suggestions about community issues.

The first outing at Bighorn Park will be hosted by the Town Council and representatives from the Public Works, Police and Fire departments, many of whom assisted the neighborhood during the spring flooding. Joining the Town Council as hosts of the second picnic will be staff from the Community Development, Finance and Administration departments at Ellefson Park in West Vail. A third picnic in the series has been discontinued indefinitely until the town’s revenues improve.

In addition to the two neighborhood gatherings, citizens are encouraged to share their ideas, concerns and suggestions at any time by calling the Vail Town Council voice mail at 479-1860, ext. 8. In addition, the town’s website at includes information on town issues and projects, as well as e-mail links and phone numbers for all departments.
