Columbus Day Weekend Events @ Okemo

It's the last party of the summer and the first of winter (and the foliage is absolutely beautiful)! In true summer style, Okemo has two great bands lined up to play this weekend at Jackson Gore. 'J-San and the Analogues' will kick off the afternoon and will be followed by the Jimmy Buffet Tribute Band 'Changes in Latitudes'. Throw in a BBQ complete with margaritas and Corona, beach balls and leis, and its a party!

Plus, families can join the fun with pumpkin carving, a VINS presentation, a night hike and marshmallow roasting, and the showing of a Warren Miller film.

Schedule of Events:

Noon- 4: Hayrides leaving the drop off circle all afternoon
1-2:45: J-San and the Analogues on stage
3:30-5:30: Changes in Latitudes on stage
6:30-7:30: Night hike and marshmallow roasting at the Fire Pit
8: Warren Miller movie in the Cornerstone Room

Guided foliage hikes at 9 am, 1 pm and 2:30 pm leaving from the Fire Pit
10-11: Pumpkin carving and decorating at the Fire Pit

Hope to see you on the mountain this weekend!
