So many events, so little time. Our events calendar is full, so we are here to help you out. Springtime is in full swing in the valley in April. The snow has almost completely melted away, making space for the vibrant hillsides and wildflower fields that surround town. It is time to get your hike on and enjoy the perfect temperatures. We are talking patio, street-strolling, linger longer outside kind of weather that you won’t soon forget.
