To accommodate all of its Independence Day activities, Breckenridge is making temporary adjustments to the Free Ride transit system and closing some town streets, along with offering a new park-and-ride service on Tuesday featuring free parking and frequent shuttles from the Satellite lot to Breckenridge Station all day.
Parade goers are urged to plan for traffic and arrive early to secure a good spot.
The Main Street parade begins at 9:30 a.m. with the Firecracker 50 mountain bike race. Following the parade, Main Street will see a variety of activities, including water hose activities, pony rides and a community drum circle.
