2021 Durango Shimmy Mob
10:00am / Downtown Durango
The art of belly dance traditionally celebrates the beauty and mystique of being a woman. Local dancers strive to share that message through their benefit performances while giving back to their community.    International Shimmy Mob teams will celebrate World Belly Dance Day on Saturday, May 8, to help raise awareness for domestic violence programs globally and locally. The goal is to focus on prevention and lowering the statistics of abuse. For the past 10 years since its inception, there have been 56 participating countries with 1441 teams and 15,453 team members.   The Durango Shimmy Mob team will support Alternative Horizons again this year. All of the 2021 Shimmy Mob performances are free and open to the public. Donations will be gratefully accepted and all proceeds will benefit Alternative Horizons.    Kim Zook, executive director of Alternative Horizons said: “With the help, dedication and hard work of the Shimmy Mob team, Alternative Horizons has continued to provide much-needed advocacy, therapy, educational and support services to victim/survivors of domestic violence in our community.”    This year, the Durango Shimmy Mob team has over 35 registered dancers ranging from novices to professional level. On May 8, Shimmy Mob dance teams from all around the world will be performing the same choreography. In Durango, the Shimmy Mob will be performing a 15-minute show at the following places and times:    10:00, 10:30, 11:00, & 11:30 - Durango Farmers Market  12:00 - D&SNGR Train Station  1:00 - Durango Rug Company  2:00 - Main Mall  3:00 - Durango Craft Spirits  4:00 - Primi Pasta & Wine Bar   “There are truly no words to adequately express Alternative Horizon’s gratitude for the Shimmy Mob’s exceptionally generous support of its domestic violence services and ongoing commitment to our mission of making our community a safer place,” said Zook.    Alternative Horizons is a grassroots organization that began in 1978. Services include a 24-hour hotline, support groups, court advocacy, and education/outreach. All services are free and confidential.

Hauntings & History Ghost Tour
8:00pm / Hermosa Cafe
Downtown Durango is saturated with paranormal activity. You don’t need to walk far to get your fill of ghost stories. Main Avenue was once home to a plethora of saloons, dance halls, brothels, and gambling halls. It was the stomping ground for outlaws, gamblers, prostitutes, miners, and railroad workers. Late night escapades, fueled by whiskey, led to many tragic events resulting in the ghosts that wander the streets today.   Our 90-minute Hauntings & History Ghost Tour will not disappoint. We will meet outside of Hermosa Cafe (738 Main Ave) at dusk. Come early and order a drink from their bar to bring to our first stop. We will be in one of the oldest basements downtown and (spoiler alert!) it's haunted! We have conducted paranormal investigations in the location and have captured quite a bit of evidence. We only have temporary access to this location so don't miss out!!!    Wherever we tread on Main Avenue you will hear tales of apparitions who refuse to leave the places they inhabited in life. Because of the tight sidewalks downtown and Covid guidelines we cap our tours at 10 people. Your fully vaccinated guide will not be wearing a mask while outside in order for guests to better hear the information. We do require our groups to wear their masks in order to ensure safety in the case that not everyone is vaccinated.
