The weather is warming up and it’s time to take advantage of Colorado’s 300+ days of sunshine. Gather a group of friends and your most outrageous pool float and join the Granby and Grand Lake Chambers of Commerce for Dinghy Days! On July 20th, masses of floats (and their owners) will flock to Granby Lake in Granby, Colorado, to soak up the sun on their favorite inflatable.
For those of you who have never heard the term, a dinghy is a small, inflatable boat. We’ve likely all seen these vessels in the form of flamingos, donuts, and diamond rings gracing our social media feeds. But who needs a pool when you can float in an open lake while breathing in the fresh mountain air found in this charming town?
On July 20th from 11am-3pm, head to Quinette Point at Granby Lake to enjoy the floating festivities. If you’re coming from the city, taking the train from downtown Denver to Granby Station will make for an easy and environmentally friendly commute to Granby. Just make sure to blow up your raft AFTER your train ride. Prizes will be awarded for the most impressive floats so don’t hold back and get ready to float your troubles away!
