IZ Style Outdoor Adventure on Saturday 8/16
Okemo is one busy place this coming weekend. Friday night we welcome the Michael Cleary Band for the FREE Friday night concert series, then on Saturday we have Specialized bikes here with their full demo fleet. Test ride a new mountain, cross, or road bike on Saturday from 12-5pm. We'll have some newly cut trails and of course the great roads around the area for the road bikes. Bring your helmet and if you'd like your own pedals and the techs from Specialized and Joe Jones will get you all taken care of.
The evening continues with 2 great bands on the big stage. The free concert starts at 5:30pm as Audio Journal opens up for The Pete Kilpatrick Band and the Coleman Brook Tavern will have the popular BBQ ready to go for dinner. Enjoy ribs, burgers, dogs, and all the fixin's along with a cold beverage.
You may notice a lot of folks running by the concert venue as well. The 100 on 100 Relay (www.100on100.org) finishes at Okemo with a great party in the Ice House. Teams of 6 will have run from the Trapp Family Lodge to Okemo in a relay format race down rt 100.
Couple this in with a great weekend at Okemo Valley Golf Club, kayaking with Extreme Adventures of Vermont, and all that the Okemo Valley offers and you've got a full weekend of activity and entertainment.
We hope to see you here!
