Spend the 4th of July in Vail and see the Vail America Days parade. One of the biggest events of the summer, the annual parade that begins at 10 am in Golden Peak and goes to Lionshead, has more than 10,000 viewers along the parade route. You can walk out the back of Vail International and stake out a good viewing spot by the Dobson Ice Arena. One of the most popular and entertaining highlights of the parade is the Vail Precision Lawn Chair Demonstration Team.
