Mammoth 4th of July 2014People living in and around Mammoth Lakes, California, are never at a loss for things to do. And this coming July and August will be no exception. Independence Day Weekend kicks off with a series of events and plenty are expected to follow. Here’s a sneak peek at some of what every Mammoth Lakes resident has to look forward to in the weeks ahead:

Summer Movie Series

If you have time to spare on a Sunday or Thursday evening, why not take advantage of the Summer Movie Series. It takes place at Mammoth’s Village from now until the last Thursday in August. The movies range from G-rated childhood favorites (e.g. Babe) to PG-13 family films like Grudge Match and the Lone Ranger. Oh, and be sure to stop by the Busy Beez General Store and grab some munchies before the films start to roll.

Dance Party Weekend

Do you love the bands, Boogie Knights and Spazmatics? Then clear your calendar for the weekend of July 11th and bust out your best Madonna or Brat Pack outfit. It will be time for the Village’s Dance Party Weekend. Say Anything trench coats, Let’s Get Physical head bands, stretchy friendship bracelets and teenage angst are optional.

Jazz Jubilee Weekend

What are you doing the weekend of July 18th? If you haven’t got anything planned yet, get ready to channel your inner Satchmo, Coltrane, Dizzy, Simone or Fitzgerald. The Village will be holding a Jazz Jubilee that weekend that is sure to please. The list of hot bands expected to be in attendance includes Cornet Chop Suey, The Professors, Side Street Strutters, Blue Street Jazz and Gator Nation. Wine tastings, barbecue foods ala Santa Maria are slated to be taking place onsite as well.

Then you won’t want to be out of town the weekend of July 25th. It marks the kickoff of the much anticipated, Annual Villagefest. Some of the bands slated to be on tap this year are Halfway to Benton, Pink Froyd, Street Heart, Tina Michelle and the Rhinestone Cowboys.
