Summer is in full swing in Telluride! This week in Telluride is the Nothing Festival - the one weekend of summer where there is no festival over the weekend. But if you are heading out with family & friends, there is still plenty of fun to be had!
The weather has been cooperating beautifully over the past few days. We have escaped the afternoon storms, so be sure to get out and enjoy the sun, because in true San Juan fashion, the weather can change in an instant.
As always, there is the weekly Friday Farmer's market. Local growers, producers & businesses have stalls ranging from local fruit, vegetables & meat to jewelry, massage and chocolate!
There is $10 yoga at the Ahaa School on Fridays, and the Tuesday Acupuncture clinic. For the full schedule of the Ahaa classes and clinics visit http://www.ahhaa.org/
For the kids there is the bungee trampoline in Mountain Village, movies at the Nugget theatre, Pinhead Punk Science & don't forget to check out the weekly schedule for Telluride Academy at http://www.tellurideacademy.org/#!ta-news/cwt8.
