The fifth season of Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park’s popular Music on the Mountain Concert Series wraps up Sat., Sept. 21, with The Missing Link Band. Guests can enjoy the concert, drink specials and a free tram ride up and down the mountain in exchange for cans of food for the LIFT-UP food pantry or a donation to the American Red Cross to assist with flood relief efforts.
“One of the things we love most about living in Glenwood Springs is how the community comes together to support those in need,” said Steve Beckley, who owns Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park with his wife Jeanne. “As of last weekend, our community has donated more than 30,000 cans of food since the series started back in 2009. That’s really amazing when you think about it. This week, we thought we’d reach out and help our neighbors on the Front Range who are being impacted by the floods.”
Donations of any amount will be accepted. Checks should be made payable to the American Red Cross with “Colorado Floods” written in the memo line. The Red Cross provides shelter, food, health and mental health services to help families and entire communities get back on their feet.
The park will begin accepting donations for tram rides beginning at 4 p.m., and The Missing Link Band will play from 6 to 10 p.m. The only group to have performed during all five Music on the Mountain seasons, the band’s blend of dance rock, funk and groove is always a crowd favorite. The band incorporates blues, rock, country, rhythm and blues, and dance music into its shows, featuring Paul Barker on bass, Erik McPherson on guitar and vocals, Nick Kuhlmann on drums, and Holly Guerin and Kimberly Kwiatkowski on vocals. Perri’s Collision is the sponsor of this week’s concert.
The Lookout Grille and Snack Shack will be open for dinner and refreshments; drink specials including $3 glasses of wine, $3.50 Coors Lights and Coronas, and $4 well drinks, will be available in the plaza. During the event, guests will also be able to experience the newly expanded Historic Fairy Caves Tour, the King’s Row Cave Tour and the park’s rides and attractions with a Funday Pass, just $35 with the free tram ride. It includes both walking cave tours and unlimited access to the Alpine Coaster, the Giant Canyon Swing, the Cliffhanger Roller Coaster, the Mine Wheel, the Wild West Express Coaster, the Soaring Eagle Zip Ride, the Fort WhereAmI Maze, the 4D Motion Theater, the Laser Tag arena, the Speleobox cave simulator, the climbing wall and the Giddy Up! Western ride.
The park will be open until 10 p.m. for the concert, with the last tram ride up at 9:30 p.m. The outdoor rides and attractions will close at dusk; the Laser Tag arena and 4D Motion Theater will be open until 10 p.m. No outside drinks allowed.
