The annual Snowdown Light Parade featured “Rock N’ Roll” themed floats that took over Main Ave. in historic Downtown Durango, Colo. on Friday, Jan. 31. This year’s celebration featured live music, fire dancers and even free gifts for spectators. The parade is just one of the many events that locals and tourists could enjoy. Ignacio based organizations set up shop in Buckley Park as well; including the Boys and Girls Club of the Southern Ute Indian Tribe and Southwest Rainbow Youth for the Snowdown Obstacle Course on Saturday, Feb. 1. Contestants tried their luck at guessing names of famous ‘Rock N’ Roll’ bands or hopped their way across a rocking guitar. Down the road at the Durango Recreation Center, Team “White Thunder” competed in the 3-on-3 basketball tournament — one of many Snowdown family friendly events which happened during the week!
