Vail Valley community access TV will cover Vail’s July 4 parade
Join High Five Access Media for live coverage of the Vail America Days Parade.
The local community access television station will be live from Lionshead with a short pre-show beginning at 10:30 a.m. The parade is estimated to start rolling into Lionshead — the end of the parade route — at about 10:45 a.m. There will be commentary from microphone controller Tony Mauro.
This year’s parade honors the 10th Mountain Division, whose soldiers were instrumental in the creation of the ski industry and continue to serve our country today. Viewers can watch live on local cable Channel 5 or in high definition on Live on Five at http://www.highfivemedia.org, as well as on Roku and Apple TV. Subsequent replays will play on cable and the web and also will be available on demand on the High Five website.

The organization also provides low-cost video production services to Eagle County nonprofits, so these organizations can advocate for their causes on local television, the internet and social media.

“This is a celebration of all our veterans have done for us,” said Pat Hammon with the local VFW Post, who served as a nurse in Vietnam. “It’s not a time for sadness.”
