Light Parade signaled one of the high points of Durango’s
annual winter celebration Friday evening. The float procession
began with a bang as fireworks exploded over the heads
of festival goers who lined Main Ave. well before dark
to get prime viewing positions. Live music, walls of flame
and costume-clad crazies made downtown a sight to behold.
The weekend’s remaining events included everything
from a balloon rally to downhill kayak racing.
