This Weekend at Grand Lake - June 21, 2024

Summer's here and the time is right...

Good Morning!

Right on queue… heat indexes bumping up over a hundo this weekend. Summertime it is!

Once again, not a lot of OGA’s (Organized Group Activities) this weekend, so it’s a blank canvas of Grand Lake for you out there to get out and live your best lake life.

That doesn’t mean there isn’t stuff happening, because there always is around the lake in the summertime.

Oh, and if you dig food trucks, you’ll want to be at the south end tonight… plenty of choices in Langley and Ketchum.

Anyway, read on and you’ll have the info you need to make the most of your Grand Lake weekend, with lots of live music, opportunities to move your body in the mornings, and much more!

Awesome!

More Trucks & Music - The new Ketchum Eats Food Park, home to Bradford’s BBQ, is hosting a free lawn concert tonight (Friday) starting at 6 pm at their location on Hwy 85 in Ketchum.
