    Series Fee: TBD for Both Races - Entry information please contact Director.CCBurroRacing@gmail.com or Co-Race Director Brad Wann – 303-906-2269 – wpbamediarelations@yahoo.com

    Did you know? The Burro is the Colorado State Animal and that Pack Burro Racing is the only sport indigenous to the State of Colorado? It has its roots in the State’s mining heritage. In the early days of the mining industry, miners would take burros, which is the Spanish word for donkey, through the mountains of Colorado in their search for gold. Because the burros were carrying supplies, the miners could not ride the animal and so they would walk, leading the donkey. The burro races commemorate these men and their burros.

    Format: In a typical burro race, a runner and a burro race complete a prescribed course together, with the runner leading the burro on a rope. Riding the burro is not allowed. In fact, the human may carry the burro, but the burro may not carry the human. The burro must be on a lead rope, which is limited to 15 feet. Runners must maintain control of their animals at all times. Burros must also carry a pack saddle with 33 pounds of traditional mining gear, including a pick, gold pan, and a shovel. Runners may also include other gear in their saddles, such as windbreakers, water, food, etc, but the surplus gear cannot be counted in the 33 pounds. Cruelty to the burro is prohibited and racing officials have the right to hold any burro for 30 minutes following the race for an inspection by a veterinarian.

    Lore: There are two legends concerning the beginning of these burro races. The first states that the races began when two miners found gold and had to race back to the claims office. Because they could not ride the burros the miners were forced to run, leading the burros. The second legend is somewhat vague but concerns a few drunken miners at a bar in Leadville, Colorado.

Generally, mornings are nice, with any stormy weather moving in during the afternoon hours. Of course, weather on the mountain can pull some surprises!

    Bob Cook Memorial Mount Evans Hill Climb

    Time

    12:00 AM TO 11:30 PM

    Location

    PO Box 3804, Evergreen

    Details

    Bob Cook Memorial Mount Evans Hill Climb is an iconic bicycle race that takes place on the highest paved road in the United States from the City of Idaho Springs to the top of Mount Evans Scenic and Historic Byway. It was run for the first time in 1962 and was renamed in 1981 in honor of five-time race winner Bob Cook, who died of cancer at the age of 23.

    The starting point in Idaho Springs is about 20 miles west of Denver and 45 minutes east of Summit County, and if you fancy yourself a climber, this is one of the “Big Kahunas” of Hill Climbs. It is a 6,630 foot climb from an elevation of 7,500 feet all the way up to 14,130 feet. Climbing between 12,000 feet and 14,000 feet is dramatically different than climbing from 10,000 feet to 12,000 feet and consequently has been designated the Colorado State Hill Climb Championship for Senior Men, Women and Junior Men/Women 17-18.

    October 2 - Annual John Denver Celebration

    Join Georgetown, Colorado in celebrating the life of John Denver. This free event focuses on Georgetown’s special place in its heart for the Rocky Mountain High singer and actor. During the winter of 1986, Denver starred in The Christmas Gift which was filmed entirely in Georgetown. The town came back to life in the heart of winter when production of the holiday movie began to roll. Since its release, The Christmas Gift, has been a source of great pride for the town. Visit John Denver’s Georgetown for more details and updates.

    John Denver’s Georgetown is a partnership between Georgetown Promotions Commission, Guanella Pass Brewery, Hotel de Paris Museum and the Georgetown Cultural Arts Program. Take a stroll through the town’s historic commercial district, taking in the setting for many scenes in the movie while listening to live and recorded performances of his music. Shop at local merchant stores and vendor booths at Strousse Park.

    Throughout the day John Denver music will be played from the John Tomay Library Stage in the center of the Historic Georgetown Business district. Stage performances include Georgetown Community School https://georgetownschool.org students covering John Denver’s music and a Rob Solomon & Friends https://www.robsolomonmusic.com tribute concert. Recorded John Denver music will be played between performances throughout the day.

    Georgetown Cultural Arts Program will sponsor free screenings of The Christmas Gift at The Georgetown Heritage Center, 809 Taos Street, Georgetown, CO 80444 (303) 569-0289 georgetownheritagecenter.org.

    Silver Queen Walking Tours will offer a specially curated John Denver’s Georgetown Walking Tour where you can visit the town where Denver’s 1986 The Christmas Gift was filmed. You will see Strousse Park where the Christmas tree lighting scene took place, the “Letter Day” post office, and Susan McPhillip’s home. Walk the streets John walked and learn the inside scoop about his time here in Georgetown, including personal stories that were told to us by the people involved with John and The Christmas Gift’s filming here. 614 Taos, #1, Georgetown, CO 80444, silverqueenwalkingtours.com. (Fee)

    Visit Hotel de Paris Museum, where much of the movie was filmed. In the movie the hotel is run by siblings Henrietta and Bud Sawyer.

    Details

    November 6 13th Annual Pumpkin Smash Festival @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

    The Annual Pumpkin SMASH happens the 1st Saturday after Halloween in Clear Creek County. #DONTTRASHITSMASHIT

    Scraps-to-Soil holds the Pumpkin SMASH each year after Halloween to explore composting and ways to contribute less to the waste stream. We get “hands-on” with tons of techniques for pulverizing pumpkins into pieces, including the Gallagher mallets, Louisville Sluggers, the Trebuchet launcher, and the SlingShot. No matter the smash technique you choose, you will contribute to the continuance of a community-wide composting crusade.

    There will be plenty of food and drinks, contests, raffles, games, and opportunities to learn about composting and other ways to live more sustainably. The event is FREE for kids to attend and all are welcome. Bring your own Jack-O-Lanterns and pumpkins from Halloween to be SMASHed! There will also be leftover pumpkins for sale – so just show up ready to SMASH!

    Sure, it’s a ton of fun, but a great deal of effort goes into pulling off the Pumpkin SMASH! It is a volunteer-driven event, and WE NEED YOUR HELP! If you would like to volunteer at the event or help with the planning and preparation, please contact us via e-mail info@scraps-to-soil.org or on Facebook at Scraps-to-Soil, Neighborhood Compost Club.

    December 4th, 5th and 11th, 12th - Annual Georgetown Christmas Market

    Each December the town of Georgetown transforms for two weekends into a bustling Christmas scene reminiscent of Christmas of long ago. Thousands come to this tiny mountain town to experience a traditional holiday where Christmas hasn’t changed in 100 years: roasted chestnuts, holiday shopping, horse-drawn wagon rides through historic Georgetown, and wonderful sights and smells. Visitors enjoy appearances by St. Nicholas in his traditional dress and the daily procession of the Santa Lucia. Carolers in Victorian costume, dancers, and other family entertainment provide hours of memorable performances. Adorned with lights and Christmas greenery and blanketed with snow, the quaint, historic town of Georgetown, Colorado has been a Christmas tradition for generations of Colorado families. This year we hope you will begin making it a tradition of your own!!

    The Georgetown Christmas Market will be held the first and second full weekends of December and admission is FREE. Christmas Market features an outdoor European marketplace with handcrafted gifts in addition to Georgetown’s charming year-round shopping experience. Beautiful and unique shops showcase Christmas ornaments and decorations, Victorian items for the home, art, Colorado wine, rare books, jewelry, exquisite clothing, antiques, and gifts. The Market will also feature food vendors in addition to our fabulous local restaurants.

    Christmas Market Museum Tours offer a relaxed way to see the Hamill House, Hotel de Paris and Energy Museums and Georgetown Heritage Center. Docents are on hand to give information or answer questions, but guests may stroll through the properties at their leisure to enjoy the holiday decor. Prices vary.

    This event will take place in Historic Downtown Georgetown, Colorado on 6th Street.

    Details

    The Annual Georgetown Bighorn Sheep Festival takes place the Second Saturday of November from @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

    Join the Historic Town of Georgetown and Colorado Parks & Wildlife for the Annual Georgetown Bighorn Sheep Festival!

    This festival always takes place the 2nd Saturday in November and runs from 10 am until 3 pm. There will be children’s activities, crafts, music, wildlife programs, hikes, tours and so much more!

    Be sure to stop by the Bighorn Sheep Viewing Station and the Georgetown Gateway Visitor Center as trained volunteers with binoculars and spotting scopes help viewers locate the head-banging sheep and offer a brief lesson on the animals!

    To visit the viewing station, take I-70 west from Denver to the Georgetown exit (#288). Turn left on Alvarado Road and follow the brown and white binocular signs until you reach the viewing station near Georgetown lake. Bighorns may be noticed from the highway, but, for the safety of both people and wildlife, please view sheep from the viewing station.
