Put 400+ Mustangs on one street and you have the makings for one happy guy.  So its no wonder Steamboat holds one of its favorite summer events – the Rocky Mountain Mustang Roundup – over Father’s Day Weekend.

And so making Dad happy becomes really easy: Take him to a nice brunch, then let the cars do the work for you.  A stroll through downtown Lincoln Avenue will leave him smiling, just in time to head home for a good BBQ.
