Every year, the Basalt Regional Heritage Society hosts a community picnic. This year the date, July 3, was chosen to coincide with the start of the 2018 Lake Christine Fire. One year after the start of the conflagration that threatened Basalt, El Jebel and Missouri Heights, Basaltines are celebrating the fact their town is still standing.
