It's the weekend of Bonfire Brewing Block Party, and that means loads of folks will head over to Eagle for live music and brews this weekend (read more about the lineup below).
Here's the good news: Mostly sunshine is in the forecast all weekend, with temperatures hovering in the pleasant 70s. While morning thunderstorms are predicted for Sunday, that could change as well. Check back for a weekend forecast updates here.
With that in mind, here are my top picks for Vail Valley This Week.
