As the golden hour begins at this year’s Lyons Outdoor Games & Burning CAN Beer Festival, one lone BMX rider synchronizes a series of wheelies to the sounds of live music drifting from an outdoor stage in the distance. Throw in a few hundred people with plastic cups filled with craft beer raised up to the sky, all swaying along in unison to the sounds reverberating off of the nearby mountainsides and over the lush green valley, and you have yourself the perfect summer evening. With festival season in full swing, and warm weather back in the Rocky Mountain region, more perfect summer nights are on the horizon. See our full photo gallery from the festival below, and check out our Ultimate 2017 Festival Guide  to start planning your perfect summer night.
