Celebrate the 4th of July in Aspen with Meridian Jewelers

Aspen, Colorado, transforms into a hub of excitement and patriotism each year for the 4th of July. From parades and picnics to concerts and fireworks, the town offers a wide array of activities for locals and visitors alike. This year, as you plan your Independence Day festivities, make sure to include a visit to Meridian Jewelers for a touch of elegance amidst the celebration. Here’s a guide to making the most of your 4th of July in Aspen.

Start Your Day with the Boogie’s Buddy Race

Kick off your Independence Day bright and early with the Boogie’s Buddy Race. This annual charity event includes a 5-mile run, a 1-mile family and canine run/walk, and a fun, festive atmosphere. Not only is it a great way to get your blood pumping, but it also supports a good cause.

Visit Meridian Jewelers and Enjoy the Parade

After the race, head over to Meridian Jewelers, located in the heart of downtown Aspen. Our store is perfectly situated along the parade route, making it an ideal spot to enjoy the festivities. While you’re here, take the opportunity to browse our collection of fine jewelry and watches. Whether you’re looking for a unique piece to commemorate your visit or simply want to treat yourself, our staff is ready to assist you.

Experience the Old-Fashioned 4th of July Parade

At 11:00 AM, the Old-Fashioned 4th of July Parade kicks off. This beloved tradition features a colorful array of floats, marching bands, and local performers. From our vantage point at Meridian Jewelers, you’ll have an excellent view of the parade as it makes its way through the streets of Aspen. Feel free to bring a chair and settle in for a fun and festive experience.

Picnic in the Park

Post-parade, why not enjoy a picnic in one of Aspen’s beautiful parks? Wagner Park, located just a short walk from Meridian Jewelers, is a popular spot. Pack a lunch or grab some takeout from one of the nearby eateries and relax in the sun. It’s a perfect way to soak in the holiday atmosphere and enjoy some downtime with family and friends.
