The Snowdown parade brought the energy with colorful attractions and wacky displays.

This year’s safari theme attracted an assortment of wildlife attire, including elephants.
Amber Doughty and Tauri Raines of Southern Ute Royalty supported the tribe in this year’s parade. Doughty flashes a smile before throwing a handful of treats.
The safari wildlife isn’t the only highlight of the festival. Many attendees dressed in unusual and creative types of humorous apparel.
The frigid air didn’t stop a crowd from appearing. Various floats provided heat by blasting flames high in the air, warming everyone nearby.
