Sunsation Presented by Dos Equis

Copper’s annual spring festival, “The Most Interesting Weekend” presented by Dos Equis, promises to be one for the books. The weekend of amusement will offer live music, pond skimming, bikinis and beer or shall we say beats and jams, fanfare n’ flare, rails and rivalry.

Sat Apr 16

Interesting, huh? The traditional Sunsation FREE live music will be accompanied by pageantry on water and bathing beauties, stilt walkers and buskers, henna artists and mimes. You mix in our annual closing weekend events – Red Bull Slopesoakers and Eenie Weenie Bikini Contest – and interesting may be an understatement.  With DJ Landry as the ringmaster, you will not want to miss a moment of the festivities so plan to come early and stay late. And, bring on the sunshine and snowflakes.
