4th of July was a night full of fireworks in Craig and Steamboat Springs.

That’s Winnie DelliQuadri, who organized the fireworks show for the City of Steamboat Springs. It has been three years since Steamboat had fireworks because of fire danger.

Craig’s Fourth of July parade was hosted by local veterans. Moffat County residents and businesses, and groups entertained the crowd Thursday along Victory Way.

The parade in Steamboat Springs was also full of floats and businesses and area teams, with onlookers lining Lincoln Avenue. Larry, the camel, made an appearance with owner Bethany Aurin. Larry is a local celebrity and is scheduled to be on an episode of Animal Planet this Saturday at 6 p.m. The show is “Dr. Jeff: Rocky Mountain Vet.” This particular episode centers around Larry’s castration last summer, conducted by Denver veterinarian Dr. Jeff Young.

Zach Patterson has been honored with a $6,000 scholarship. The 2019 graduate of Moffat County High School is the recipient of the Mike Rowe Works Foundation Work Ethic Scholarship Program. The Craig Press reports Patterson will pursue training in the Western Colorado Community College Electric Lineworker program in Grand Junction.

A Steamboat marijuana dispensary has dropped a lawsuit against the City of Steamboat Springs. It’s because the business owners are selling the shares of their company to an Eagle County resident. The lawsuit stems from a City Council decision last year that wouldn’t allow Rocky Mountain Remedies to move from its current location on the west end of town, to a more prominent spot between downtown and Steamboat Resort.

Scott Moore of Mountain Man Taxidermy recently competed in the Colorado Taxidermist Association’s annual state taxidermy championships in New Castle. He took first place in the Masters level for a large life-size category, and second place in the game-head division.
