LUDLOW, Vermont — Searching for that lost shaker of salt or cheeseburger in paradise is going to get a lot easier when Okemo Mountain Resort hosts an end-of-summer Parrothead Party on Saturday, October 6. Jimmy Buffett tribute bands The Beach Bumz and Changes in Latitudes will perform, rain or shine, at Okemo’s Jackson Gore Inn from 3 to 7 p.m. There will be booze in the blender to render some frozen concoctions. Beer and wine, as well as soft drinks, will also be available to wash down some lip-smacking barbecue prepared by Jackson Gore’s Coleman Brook Tavern. Admission to the Parrothead Party is absolutely free but donations will be accepted to benefit the Ross Powers Foundation, a charity to assist young snowsports athletes with financial need. The foundation was established by snowboard legend Ross Powers, Okemo Mountain Resort’s new Snowboard Ambassador.

The Beach Bumz are the perfect tropical flavor to kick off Okemo’s first annual Parrothead Party. The Beach Bumz, one of the many incarnations of the Charles Parker Band, play songs from Jimmy Buffett, the Beach Boys and Bob Marley along with many other endless-summer serenades.

Changes In Latitudes is one of America’s premier Buffett tribute shows. A nine-piece band with a singular plan, Changes in Latitudes take partygoers on a journey filled with good clean fun to ??“ where else? ??“ Margaritaville. Every musical set is a party with beach balls, conga lines and leis galore. So, for a “Latitude Adjustment,” it’s time to don those grass skirts and Hawaiian shirts, and join the Parrothead Party at Okemo’s Jackson Gore.
