Snowdown Light Parade
Snowdown is an annual, week long celebration here in Durango. It has been going on since 1979, when the people of Durango decided they needed something to bring a little cheer to the dark and cold times of winter. There are many schedule events and a local favorite is the Light Parade. People dress in costume according to the Snowdown Theme (chosen by vote, this year's was 'Safari So Good') and line Main Avenue to watch floats and participants bedecked with lights and zany costumes. It's always great fun and I recommend anyone to come and see it for themselves.
