Fourth of July in Summit County: then and now

The Breckenridge Heritage Alliance will host its annual Garden Party at the Barney Ford Victorian home on Washington Avenue in Breckenridge on Thursday, July 4.

“The lawn at Barney Ford’s Victorian home will be the best viewing spot for this year’s Fourth of July festivities,” said Cindy Hintgen, of the Breckenridge Heritage Alliance. “The parade’s 70 floats will pass right by the lawn, and over 700 racers for the Firecracker 50 Mountain Bike Race will head out and fight to the finish right in front of you.”

The Garden Party will begin at 9 a.m. and feature brunch, including mimosas and coffee, along with other delectable items to the day started.

The Breckenridge Heritage Alliance is a nonprofit organization committed to protecting, sharing and celebrating the unique stories from our past. For more information on this event, as well as tours, guided hikes and museum sites, visit www.breckheritagealliance.com.
