Awesome Events in the Grand Valley
Posted: April 05, 2018 by Deborah Dietmeyer

I mean, there really isn't a better time of year here in the valley. The dull winter colors give way to a life-affirming rainbow of growth. Rivers and streams begin to swell as the high country begins its defrost. The warm weather and cool breeze just beckons us outside to Hike, Bike, Run, Garden, PLAY. Watching this little town come to life every year really allows you to appreciate just how lucky we are to live here.  Here is a highlight of some of the events happening in April.
