Music in the Mountains' Family Festivo returned to Durango for another fun-filled morning of music and entertainment. The Durango Recreation Center hosted this year's event beneath beautiful blues skies and an outdoor canopy. Families took their seats for the always energetic Ballet Folklorico. Immediately following the dance performance, the Durango Children's Theater performed Peter and the Wolf with a wonderful cast of characters. Following the music and theater, the kids were let loose to burn off their excess energy among a variety of activities including the always-entertaining three-legged race.
