Gunnison River Festival set to make a big splash
It’s hot in the city, and the high country beckons.
The Gunnison high country, in particular, with the Gunnison River Festival set for June 19-23.
The events include floats, fishing, movies from the Crested Butte Film Festival and a Solstice Sunset Extravaganza concert on June 21 at Gunnison’s Legion Park.
A whitewater rodeo happens June 21 at the Gunnison Whitewater Park just west of town, and the next day will feature flat-water action on Blue Mesa Reservoir.
Plenty of opportunities to be cool as summer officially gets kicking.
Many of the events are free, the others are quite reasonable. It’s a staycation in Gunnison.
