Learn more about Steamboat’s first Fourth of July

Bud Werner Memorial will present “Flag for the Fourth: The True Story of Steamboat Springs’ First Independence Day,” an outdoor storytelling event with Spellbinder Marianne Capra, at 4 p.m. Sunday, July 3 on the library lawn.

The story will be told at the site of Steamboat Springs’ first-ever Fourth of July celebration, where the library now stands. Travel back to 1876 as the Crawford pioneers celebrate and find out who will save the day. Capra is a freelance natural and cultural historian. She has been a historic storytelling interpreter since 1994 in national parks, outdoor science schools, local non-profits and Routt County’s schools.

The 45-minute live outdoor performance is designed for anyone 10 and older, and those planning to attend are asked to bring their own chairs and blankets. Visit http://www.steamboatlibrary.org/events for more information.
