Autumn Clean Up - Friday & Saturday, November 2nd-3rd
You know how when you leave pumpkins out for days and they begin wilting and get all slimy? Save yourself the hassle this year and consider dropping off your pumpkins, gourds, apples and other fall fruits for farmers and ranchers to use as animal feed. Not only does it help local farmers and clean up your yard, but it also keeps Durango bears safe. Drop off spots are located at both the La Plata County Fairgrounds and the Three Springs Police Department. If you stop by the La Plata County Fairgrounds be sure to participate in the games happening and enter to win a prize for heaviest pumpkin!
