Memorial Day typically signals the unofficial start of summer, but Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park kicked off summer early with the start of the Music on the Mountain summer concert series on Friday night. The mountain was alive with activity, music, rides, and good times! Doctor Robert, a Beatles tribute band, played a ton of songs from the Beatles catalogue (and took numerous audience requests) until late into the evening, performing rousing renditions of “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da,” “Come Together,” and many more, inspiring people of all ages to get out and dance. During band breaks, you could hear the screams coming from the Giant Swing as riders soared to new heights 1300 feet above the Colorado River!
If you are a fan of the Beatles as much as Doctor Robert is and are looking to show your support to them in some way, such as starting an Instagram account, looking to get free instagram followers could help boost your social following. The more followers you have on your page, the more people will be able to see the array of Paul McCartney photos you post! Who wouldn’t want to see that? There were clear skies and balmy temperatures on the mountain for the kick-off party–you could wear shorts without getting cold, even well into the night. Our wet spring has meant that everything is looking really green, which gives way to gorgeous viewing of the surrounding mountains, Colorado River and the Roaring Fork Valley.
The views, especially at sunset, were even more spectacular atop the Cliffhanger Roller Coaster, on the Mine Wheel, and on the Soaring Eagle Zip Ride! A trip on the Alpine Coaster was a zooming thrill ride through an abundance of wildflowers.
It was all fun for a good cause, too–Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park collected a total of 866 cans of food to be donated to the Lift Up Food Bank of Glenwood.
