A Hot Air Balloon Rally during a Pandemic??? Our balloonmeister has successfully run TWO rallies this year following all CDC guidelines including social distancing. The 2020 AVBR will of course have a different look than previous years but we think we will all get the most of a fun experience while still doing our part to stay safe and keep others safe.    Only crew and sponsors will be allowed on the field.

As the balloons rise and fly above the valley there will be many viewing areas throughout the valley!

Live Music with Joel Racheff
5:30pm / The Office Spiritorium
Joel Racheff was born in Wyoming, raised in New Mexico, and has spent most of his adult life in good ol’ Durango. As a young man, Joel was and continues to be interested in many types of music. As an old man, Joel enjoys Jello, long naps, and babbling (not necessarily in that order). One of the many talents he brings to the Bar D Wranglers is-?. While trying to sing lead and harmony parts with the group, Joel lays down…the foundation on his upright bass. Joel’s family includes his lovely wife Patty and sons, “Thing One” & “Thing Two” (Ringo and Cody).
Ghost Walk Tours
7:00pm / Old Durango High School
Take a walk through 140 years of haunted history in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. GHOST WALK DURANGO is a guided walking tour starting at the Old Durango High School (201 East 12th Street) through the historic district of Durango, Colorado. Durango was founded officially in 1880 to serve the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad following an unsuccessful negotiation with the existing settlement of Animas City 2 miles North. Gun battles, including the Stockton Gang and the Simmons Gang feud, lynchings, a fire in 1889 that consumed most of the wooden buildings and sidewalks in town, the Spanish Flu epidemic, and a general reckless 'Devil May Care' element that was omnipresent in the early days have all contributed to countless ghost and haunting stories. For the first 40 years of Durango's existence, no sane person left their home without a pistol. For farmers, ranchers and business people alike a lever-action rifle or double-barrel shotguns were strapped to a plow, in a saddle scabbard, or propped against a desk more often than not. All stories you will hear have been researched and well documented, and may have been experienced by your guide personally. Folklore and legends have been carefully preserved from generations of local storytellers. As educational as it is fun, GHOST WALK DURANGO is one of Durango's most popular attractions and a sure bet for fun and thrills. Tours are offered nightly at 7:00 pm.   If a time or date isn't listed on our booking site please contact us, we may be able to accommodate your request. Perfect for couples and kids from 1-101.   Tickets $20  Kids 10 and under are FREE!!!
