JACKSON HOLE, WY. – June 11, 2013 – On the 4th of July at 6 p.m., the Grand Teton Music Festival Orchestra will perform patriotic favorites in the acoustically superb Walk Festival Hall in Teton Village for Music in the Hole.

The festivities on both days will be followed by fireworks. On July 3, Teton Village Association will offer free gondola rides from 4:30 p.m. until nightfall, and on July 4 the aerial tram will be open late until 7:00 p.m.
