The Weekender // April 9th - April 11th
Welcome back Durango, we’ve missed you. We’re finally ALMOST back to normal after a year of quarantines, executive orders, masks, vaccines and our beloved town’s event life being cancelled. 2020 sucked-- we can all agree on that. Even though we are slowly starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel, we are almost completely back to operating at a Durango-summer level in full swing. That being said, it’s only the beginning of spring which means warm weather, sunshine, birds chirping, flowers blooming and, most importantly, Durango events. Keep an eye out for the weekender, coming at you every Thursday all summer long for our top event picks that you don’t want to miss out on. No one likes being green with envy-- so don’t get FOMO (fear of missing out) and be sure to keep checking back with us! Therefore, without further adieu, here are our picks for the best events happening this weekend. If you are having too much fun and want to share the experience, be sure to tag us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter-- we’d love to give you a shoutout for spreading the fun!
