The Weekender // Sept. 6th - 8th
Labor Day weekend has passed and the lows for every day in Durango are now consistently around 50 degrees (Fall, is that you?). Fort Lewis students are officially in school alongside the rest of the local school districts. Needless to say, summer is over, and you may be looking for a way to decompress after the beginnings of new schedules and homework-filled weekends. Here’s a list of things going down this weekend so that everyone can shake off the first week of September. Have a stellar weekend, folks! Whatever you end up doing, make sure to share your photos on social media and use #dodurango to be featured on our pages.
