We’re still reminiscing on all the wonderful memories we made during a fun-filled 4th of July weekend. We saw some outstanding competition at our golf and pickleball tournaments, watched a breathtaking fireworks display at our Festival at The Amphitheater, and enjoyed an extended weekend of fun in the summer sun. Read on and check out this video we put together highlighting all the excitement as we look forward to next year’s festivities.

4th of July Festival

What a fantastic evening of food, fun, and fireworks at our 4th of July Festival. Power 2 Party had the Amphitheater rocking before a breathtaking fireworks display lit up the night sky and echoed throughout the mountains. We also savored some all-American cuisine from Executive Chef Santiago Guzzetti and Executive Pastry Chef Gabrielle Warner. From bacon cheeseburgers and mac & cheese to brownies and cookies, no one left with an empty stomach! Thank you to everyone who joined us for one of our most lively events of the year.
