LUDLOW, Vermont — Margarativille will have a new zip code on Oct. 10 and searching for that lost shaker of salt or finding that cheeseburger in paradise will be a lot easier when Okemo Mountain Resort hosts its third annual end-of-summer Parrothead Party on the Saturday of Columbus Day weekend. Following a performance by Spiritual Rez at 1 p.m., Changes in Latitudes will take to the stage at Okemo’s Jackson Gore Inn. There will be booze in the blender to render those 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 free and open to the public.

With special thanks to Land Shark Lager, a drawing for a pair of Jimmy Buffett concert tickets will take place during intermission on Oct. 10. Anyone who books a stay, which includes October 10, through Okemo Mountain Resort Properties will automatically be entered to win two tickets to see Jimmy Buffett live at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Conn., on Nov. 21, 2009.

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.

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.
