Frisco expands schedule to include two new events

FRISCO – Frisco has added two new events to their list of summer festivities – the Boomer Fest and the Classic Car Show.

The Boomer Fest is similar to Frisco’s annual Music on Main, said Frisco community relations director, Linda Lichtendahl, but this one is targeted to baby boomers.

“It’s going to be a rock “n’ roll concert – rock n’ roll from the ’70s and ’80s to appeal to the baby boomers, because they would have been in their 20s and 30s,” Lichtendahl said.

The Frisco Chamber of Commerce will sponsor the new event with the town. Lichtendahl credits the chamber’s special events committee for coming up with the idea after looking at area demographics.

“We think it’s not really being done anywhere else,” she said. “Hopefully, we’ll start a new event that will get larger each year. The bigger the event, the better talent we’ll be able to attract.”

Boomer Fest will be held Saturday, Aug. 24. As with Music on Main, Boomer Fest will feature several bands, including one headliner, and will begin mid-afternoon, continuing into the evening. The bands have yet to be selected.

Though the concert is created especially for the baby boomer generation, “it will hopefully attract all ages,” Lichtendahl said.

Car lovers will be happy to hear Frisco has taken over from Dillon in sponsoring the Classic Car Show. According to Lichtendahl, the event outgrew its old home in Dillon and has moved to Frisco, where it has more room to grow.

The event is sponsored by Denver-based Hot Rods, Customs, Classics Car Club. Lichtendahl said the town expects approximately 150 cars this year – Model T’s to later model classic cars will be gathered on Main Street for display.

Since this will be the event’s first year in Frisco, Lichtendahl said it won’t be as big as the town’s annual Corvette show, “Vettes on the Rockies, but there’s room to grow.

“So maybe someday they’ll have 500 cars here,” she said.

The Classic Car Show will be held from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m., Saturday, July 20.
