The timeline of events around July 4th in Steamboat Springs have recently been confirmed by the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association. Sticking with the traditional timing the 105th Annual Cowboys Roundup Days and Fourth of July Celebration including the pancake breakfast, parade, nighttime fireworks, cattledrive and rodeo, rodeo, rodeo is set for the July 3rd – 6th with the cattledrive down Lincoln Avenue  set for 10am on Sunday, July 6.

The beauty of a leap year means that the obstacles of the 07 summer will not be repeated and a whole week will separate the Fourth and the 28th Annual Hot Air Balloon Rodeo on July 11-13. The site of the Balloon Rodeo is set to be at an improved Bald Eagle Lake location again in 08. As usual the Balloon Rodeo will share the second weekend of July with Art in the Park at West Lincoln Park, downtown. More information will be made available at www.hotairballoonrodeo.com later in the year so check back in a few months.
