The Lyons Outdoor Games announces free Revivalists concert on May 30th to raise funds for the flood-recovering town of Lyons, Colorado
Weekend camping in Bohn Park, Lyons will make for a high-energy festival experience during this fundraiser event for the Town of Lyons Parks, Recreation and Cultural Department. On Friday evening the Class IV+ Adam Barron Memorial Creek Race will return for the first time since the 2013 Floods, and a full day of adventure-sporting events will take place from 9am to 5pm on Saturday, May 30th. Events will include Sunrise Yoga on the Green, pro BMX/mountain biking competition, slackline events, acro yoga demo & workshop, open and pro slalom and freestyle kayaking and over 50 craft breweries featured at the 4th annual Oskar Blues Burning Can Festival. As a family-friendly event, the Kids Outdoor Games area will include a rock climbing wall, a kayak pool with kayak instruction courses, face painting and more. Sign up for the newest participatory event, the Beer Relay, Colorado’s only Endurance Drinking and Running event and a 6 hour trail running relay where runners can optionally drink a beer before each 5km lap to gain time bonuses.
The Lyons Outdoor Games and The Revivalists concert are free-admission events. Big Thompson Flood and Interstate Stash Express will open for New Orleans-based American soul and blues band, The Revivalists. The Lyons community welcomes the arrival of the Revivalists who helped shape a New Orleans fundraiser last year as an emergency flood relief fundraiser for the hard-hit community of Lyons.
On-site camping and parking for a rounded festival experience is encouraged both Friday and Saturday nights at Bohn Park, Lyons and camping/parking proceeds will go to the Town of Lyons Parks, Recreation and Cultural Events Department. Local mountain biking, hiking, fly fishing and small Colorado-town shopping promises a full weekend of adventure for everyone. Title Sponsorship opportunities for the Lyons Outdoor Games are still available - check the website for details.
