Snowdown will deliver safari fun in 36th edition

Going on its 36th continuous year, Snowdown Durango persists in promoting fun, commerce and tourism, in that order, for tens of thousands of participants.

This year, Snowdown boasts a record-setting number of 146 events which will all take place as a part of the Original Cabin Fever Reliever.

The theme, Snowdown Safari So Good, will surely entertain safarians, humans and wildlife of all species’ and ages.

The annual Snowdown Light Parade attracts more than 10,000 spectators to the streets of downtown Durango to tame the cold and take part in the fun. The light parade features amazing, theme-oriented light floats, performance art and costumes.

Whether it’s the old favorite events like Outhouse Stuffing, The Snowdown Jokedown, and Outlaw Josie Pete’s Golf Tournament; or, some of the rated “F” for family fun events such as the Feline and Canine Fashion Show, The Snowdown Kids Follies or The Snowdown Hot Air Balloon Rally, everyone will want to be sure to join in the monkey business.

We’re not lion! Get giraffe over to Durango for the 2014 Snowdown Safari So Good celebration, beginning on Wednesday, Jan. 29 through Sunday, Feb. 2.

The annually changing themes of Snowdown Durango make this five-day festival truly one of a kind. Voted one of Outside Magazine’s top five winter carnivals in North America, past themes have ranged from A Jolly Roger Snowdown (pirates) to Snowdown In Da Nile (Egyptian) and many, many more.
