Anders Osborne to headline this year’s Games

Anders Osborne to headline this year's Games

Rich and glorious…Osborne possesses a voice that rises out of the darkness to the light of a soulful, tremulous wail. He is a consummate showman and shaman, bending successive moments to suit his majestic purposes. Osborne seeks an epic quality to much of his music, crafting layer upon layer of hugely scaled soundscapes.…never lazily derivative…every slashing guitar figure, every cry of a lyric, seems to come from an authentic place.

Lyons, Colorado, March 28: Lyons to hold 13th Annual Lyons Outdoor Games & Oskar Blues’ Burning Can Beer Festival May 31st to support Parks & Rec Flood relief. Anders Osborne to headline

The Town of Lyons, Colo., announced today that despite floodwaters damaging most of its parkland, trails, and waterways, it will still hold its signature Lyons Outdoor Games multi-sport festival and the accompanying Burning Can Beer Festival on Saturday, May 31.

“The Lyons Outdoor Games is one of the premier events on the Front Range, showcasing some the country’s finest canned beer, most exciting extreme sports, and this year, Anders Osborne,” said Parks & Rec Director Dave Cosgrove. “The Games are a Lyon’s tradition. We have a long history of offering world-class opportunities to both expert and aspiring extreme athletes in kayaking, mountain biking, and rock climbing, among others. The floods devastated our town, but not our adventurous spirit.”

Drink a variety of fine crafted brews at Oskar Blues’ Burning Can Festival while listening to great music and watching some of America’s best BMX bikers get big air off our dirt jumps.

Dirt Jumps, Pumptrack, BMX Madness

Dirt Jumps, Pumptrack, BMX Madness

Lyons is a mecca for cyclists of all kinds. Whether passing through Town on your Peak-to-Peak ride or mountain biking at Hall Ranch or Heil Ranch, Lyons is a destination bike town. Though we lost our St. Vrain River Corridor Trail, we’re working hard to raise funds to rebuild it so that you have a riverside thoroughfare directly through Lyons to your favorite trails. We are lucky that most of Bohn Park survived the floods. So our pumptrack and dirt jumps will be the main adventure attraction at the 2014 Lyons Outdoor Games.
