The gloominess of winter is over and spring has finally arrived, which means summertime in Durango is right around the corner! As you start to spring clean and swap out your winter gear for summer gear, be sure to keep in mind the MANY events that are happening around town all month long. PSA: Don’t pack your winter coat away just yet and remember to always bring layers when you leave the house because we all know Colorado spring weather is fickle!
