Okemo to host annual Parrothead Party with Jimmy Buffett tribute band Changes in Latitudes
LUDLOW, Vt. – Okemo Mountain Resort celebrates the changing of the seasons on Saturday, Oct. 6, with its sixth annual Parrothead Party. Island breezes will blow as the band Changes in Latitudes takes to the outdoor stage for a free concert at Okemo’s Jackson Gore base area. This popular Jimmy Buffett tribute band takes partygoers on a journey filled with good clean fun to – where else? – Margaritaville. Every musical set is a party with beach balls and conga lines.
The party will start at noon with the music of Dave Maguire. Changes in Latitudes will go on at 2 p.m. Okemo’s Coleman Brook Tavern staff will be rendering some frozen concoctions and cooking up some cheeseburgers in paradise for concertgoers. They’ll even help find that lost shaker of salt, plus beer, wine, soft drinks and barbecue items fresh from the grill. A mini farmers’ market will feature local produce and assorted Vermont creations.
In addition to all the Parrothead Party festivities, Columbus Day weekend marks the deadline for early season discounts on the purchase of ski and snowboard season passes at Okemo Mountain Resort. Starting Oct. 9, all of Okemo’s season pass products go to full price. Season passes are a great way to save on lift tickets and avoid ticket-window lines. Okemo offers direct-to-lift seven-day passes, five-day passes, midweek passes and even a Sunday One-Day Pass. Some passes include skiing and riding benefits with Okemo’s sister resorts, Mount Sunapee, N.H., and Crested Butte Mountain Resort, Colo. Okemo’s partnership continues, this winter, with Stratton Mountain as well.
