The Weekender // April 30th - May 2nd
We finally made it to another weekend and I don’t know about you, Durango, but I am ready to kick start the outdoor activities! With the temps reaching around 80 degrees and sun rays beaming down on our little mountain town, it’s the perfect excuse to soak up the vitamin D and celebrate the beginning of the transition from spring to summer. It’s already May and this year seems to be flying by a little too quickly. Time to take advantage of the festivities. There are two MAJOR music celebrations happening this weekend that it would be too hard to pass up on at least one of them.
With the sun shining, not a cloud in sight and the weekend approaching, what is your ideal activity for the next two days? Tag us in your adventures on Facebook and/or Instagram and be sure you hashtag #dodurango!
