One of the highlights of the Durango Cowboy Poetry Gathering is the largest motorless parade in Colorado. This much anticipated event takes place downtown on Saturday morning following a delicious chuckwagon breakfast that begins at 7:30 a.m. at the corner of 5th and Main. An Old West gunfight in front of the Main Mall kicks off the parade which starts promptly at 10:30 a.m. The colorful procession does not involve any vehicles—just historic wagons and carriages, lovely ladies & gents dressed in period costumes, and buckaroos on stick horses. And of course, there will be horses, lots of horses as well mules, donkeys, and even a llama or two.    Anyone is welcome to enter the parade and there is no entry fee. So why not get dressed up and join in the fun? If you can't enter, come on down that morning and cheer on those who do. In addition to a cowboy breakfast, there will be live music at the Main Mall. You'll have a great time and will be supporting Durango's western heritage.

6:00pm / 500 Block of Main Avenue
Come to the Downtown Durango Balloon Glow (weather permitting).   Hot air balloons will light up the sky in Downtown Durango at the balloon glow in the 500 block of Main in front of the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad Depot.   Arrive around 6 pm to see the balloons inflate. The glow starts at approximately 6:30 pm, weather permitting. Visitors will be able to be up close to see the balloon pilots in action. Kids will love seeing all the colorful balloons! The balloons will come down around 7:30 pm, weather permitting. Schedule subject to change.   Make sure you bring your camera for the glowing balloons. There will also be "candlesticks" which are the balloon basket and burners, without the balloon. Pilots will let kids get in the basket and pull the burner, it's really cool!   Come earlier or stay after to enjoy dinner at one of the local restaurants near the event: T's Smokehouse and Grill, East by Southwest, Gazpacho's New Mexican Restaurant, Nini's Taqueria, Sizzling Siam, Cuckoos', or The Roost.    The event is weather dependent, so cross your figures for a storm and wind-free evening.   Proudly sponsored by the Durango Business Improvement District
