STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Check out these local events for the Fourth of July holiday weekend.

Red White and Blue Drive-Through July 4 route.

Red White and Blue Drive-Through

10 a.m. Saturday, July 4, Red White and Blue Drive-Through, various locations

A new take on the classic downtown parade, this event brings all the essential elements of a patriotic procession to the neighborhoods of Steamboat Springs. The drive-through will eliminate groups congregating on Lincoln Avenue and allow people to adhere to public health orders and physical distancing requirements. Police cars and fire trucks will lead the procession in a rolling closure through town, and streets will remain open. A live broadcast from Big Country Radio KBCR 96.9 FM will track the location of the procession. You can also stream it at steamboatradio.com/player/kbcr

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

To celebrate Fourth of July, Steamboat Creates offers up hope. The July exhibit explores the theme of hope through the lens of local artists. To make First Friday Artwalk a little sweeter, Steamboat Creates will be serving ice cream floats. Weather dependent, the exhibit will be hung outside of the Depot Art Center. In the main gallery, Riverwalk will be exploring the theme “Steamboat the Beautiful.”
