FREE High Country Music Festival

On July 10th the town of Winter Park hosted the FREE KYGO High Country Music Festival at beautiful, outdoor, downtown concert venue, Hideaway Park.  Chris Cagle, The Josh Abbott Band and Kory Brunson headlined this FREE Country Music extravaganza!

 
Chris Cagle, who, since his debut on Billboard’s Hot Country Singles & Tracks in 2000, rocked the crowd with his top-ten hits including his #1 hit in 2002, “I Breathe in I Breathe Out”, “What a Beautiful Day”, “Chicks Dig It”, “What Kinda Gone” and many more.
Also on the line-up, Texas’s The Josh Abbott Band, the “fastest rising young stars in Texas country.” All of their songs are written or co-written by Josh Abbott, including their latest hit “She’s Like Texas”.  As well as, Denver’s own up-and-coming star, the Kory Brunson Band, whose first singles were released this year with a very positive response from Denver’s country fans and KYGO.  They played new country-with-a-twist-of-rock, including “Hard Country” and “Good Clean Dirty Fun.”
The free music started at noon and kept entertaining well past 6! We all had a blast enjoying some of today’s best Country music, thank you to all the artists, KYGO and the Winter Park-Fraser Valley Chamber of Commerce for this great day in the mountains!

Habitat Hobble 2010

On Saturday, June 19th Katlynn and I participated in Grand County Habitat For Humanity’s only fundraising event,  the annual 5K Habitat Hobble. This year Habitat raised money to build a home for the Bailey family of Grand County.

The walk/run began at 9am at the Fraser Visitor Center and ran south along the Fraser River ending in Winter Park at Cooper Creek Square. At the finish line we were greeted with food, prizes, a silent auction and a live KCMV radio broadcast. We had a blast! Hope you will join us next year!
