The town of Oak Creek celebrated the long Labor Day weekend with their annual parade Monday. Here’s Oak Creek Mayor Nikki Knoebel.
Grand Marshal of the Oak Creek Parade this year was Andy Johnson, who was a longtime math teacher in the Soroco School District. He recently retired.
The Soroco Class of ’82 also rode through the parade. The first Labor Day parade in Oak Creek was back in 1913.
The beach at Howelsen Hill in Steamboat Springs is closed as of today. The outdoor lights at the volleyball, tennis, and pickleball courts are outdated and being replaced. The new lights will be energy-efficient LED lights that will be on a smart system. That means they can be turned on and off remotely and they won’t take 20 minutes to fire up. The Howelsen Beach area will be closed for the rest of the season and will reopen in the spring.
For those still wanting to play volleyball, the city of Steamboat Springs Parks and Rec department is setting up a grass volleyball league this fall. https://www.steamboatsprings.net/221/Adult-Sports
