Frisco’s Fabulous 4th of July celebration included concerts, a fishing derby and a parade down Main Street.

The derby attracted more than 130 kids to the Meadow Creek Pond for two hours of fishing, hosted by the Gore Range Chapter of Trout Unlimited and the town of Frisco.

“It was a tough year on the pond. The fish were pretty shy this morning, but the kids persevered, and I think we all learned why they call it ‘fishing’ and not ‘catching,’” said Vanessa Agee, the town’s director of marketing and communications.

She thanked the town’s Trout Unlimited partners for helping kids with gear, measuring fish and providing guidance about fishing best practices. Lance Glaser of the Gore Range Chapter personally donated prizes and participant gifts.

The Frisco July 4th parade saw 70 floats and more than 200 kids participate in the bike parade.

The parade kicked off with the Summit County Sheriff’s Office, Lake Dillon Fire-Rescue and Copper Mountain Fire Department and made its way along Main Street from Madison Avenue to Sixth Avenue with large candy hauls for the kids.

“The parade was as fun as ever, but parade participants and spectators also took time to express their appreciation for the service of our military personnel, veterans and first responders,” said Nora Gilbertson, the town’s special events manager.

Town officials thanked the parade judges — Judi Amico, Tom Connolly and Lynda “Mama Moose” Colety — and the event’s emcee, Roman Moore.

Parade winners may pick up their prizes at Frisco Town Hall starting Wednesday, July 8, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
