Kicking things off in the summer is Breckenridge's annual Independence Day Celebration. Although fire restrictions ban the setting off of public or private fireworks in Breck, the town makes up for it with plenty of other festivities.

The day starts with a 10K fun run along scenic trails from 7-11 AM. In between the trail 10k, from 9:30-11:30am, the Independence Day Parade and Firecracker 50 mountain bike race set off at from Main street. After the riders hit the trail for their 50-mile race, the revered annual parade marches down Main St. until 11:30 AM. Registration for each of these events tends to sell out fast, so be sure to book your spot well in advance.

An Independence Day event celebrating freedom, surf culture and beach party fun, featuring tubular tunes, a dog fashion show, patriotic tie-dye, beach games, BINGO, our annual chalk art contest and a beach rock lip sync battle! Wear your Hawaiian shirt, bring a lei for your pooch and join us for a far out Fourth!

Once those mini-events finish up, there is an assortment of fun contests, games, and other group things to do at Surfin' USA from 11 AM to 4 PM.
