Steamboat Today's top 10 weekend events for April 21 to 23

— Wondering what to do and where to go in Steamboat Springs? We've got you covered with this weekend's top 10 events.



Kyle Love, right, and Maria Palmer walk Brewster along the Spring Creek Trail. Love and Palmer say they always pick up after Brewster, but that can’t be said of all dog owners. That’s why organizers of April Stools Day are hoping that a large number of volunteers will come out in force to help clean up local parks and trails across Steamboat Springs.
