Georgetown’s July 4 parade an old-fashioned celebration

Georgetown’s July 4 parade an old-fashioned celebration was created by ClearCreekCourant

Sixty-eight years ago, Bob Hurrell spent the Fourth of July serving in the Korean War.


Last week, he spent part of his holiday playing with the Jeffco Brass Ensemble in Georgetown’s annual Fourth of July parade, just as he has every year for the past 20 years.

“It’s the greatest thing in the world,” Hurrell, an Army and Air Force veteran, said of the holiday. “You don’t know what this day means until you’ve spent it out of the country.”

Hurrell, who lives in Arvada, said the parade is one of the best in the state, and he and his bandmates look forward to it every year. His colleagues even plan their vacations around the event.

Locals and visitors partake in the 4th of July 5K run in Georgetown

GEORGETOWN — The Fourth of July is about patriotism, family and community, and the Tom Hayden Memorial 5K in Georgetown perfectly embodies those qualities as residents and visitors alike come out to race by historical homes and around the lake.

Last Thursday, a local and a visitor each won their respective races.

Aspen Taylor, 7, rang in the new 1K race with a first-place time of 15:38. In her native Texas, she’s participated in similar races. She and her family were in town for the holiday.
