Grand Lake wraps up Constitution Week
September 23, 2014
Grand Lake wrapped up its annual Constitution Week celebrations last weekend, ending on a high note with a spectacular fireworks display over Grand Lake.
Saturday, Sept. 20, was a beautiful sunny day as residents and visiting tourists wandered the side streets and main boulevard of Grand Lake, perusing the shops and information booths in the town square while waiting for the formal events to begin.
A parade started at 11 a.m. and ran east down Grand Avenue underneath a massive American flag hung between the extended ladders of two fire trucks. Michael Brown of KHOW Radio in Denver was the featured speaker for the day, finishing off a week-long speaker's series featuring topics related to the constitution.
The day was capped with a fireworks show over the lake beginning at 8:30 p.m.
Grand Lake's annual Constitution Week commemorates the completion of the U.S. Constitution before it was sent to the various states for ratification.
