This Weekend in Sterling
The Juke Joint Cruisers, Colorado's premier rockabilly band and July Jamz favorite, is live Friday, July 8 at 6 pm. This is part of the July Jamz free concert series held every Friday evening in July at the Logan County Courthouse Square in downtown Sterling.
Bring your own lawn chair or spread out a blanket and enjoy the fresh-air music, food trucks, beer garden, artists, vendors, and more.
If you like shiny objects, you can bet you’ll see some of the prettiest at the annual Colorado Flatlanders Car Club Rod Run in the beautiful outdoor setting of Pioneer Park, Saturday, July 9, from 9 am-4 pm.
This show-and-shine event features street rods, street machines, trucks, late models, and more, all vying for the coveted “club choice award” among others. Lunch is available on site from 11 am-2 pm.
Nothing screams summer quite like splashing in an outdoor swimming pool and water park. The Sterling Recreation Center has both an indoor pool and outdoor pool which includes several water features such as a Multi-Play 5 and three slides. There is a beach entry as well as a separate wading pool with a mini water dome and six water jets. The largest attraction is the double-flumed slide, with a translucent blue speed slide about 130 feet long and one open flume slide about 220 feet long. Relax among the shaded picnic tables and chairs when you need a break from the sunshine.
