One of the most well known winter festivities has kicked off in beautiful Durango, Colorado. This year it's a "Black Tie Affair" and the streets are lined with Durango's best dressed.
A list of events can be found here : http://snowdown.org/
If you haven't visited our beautiful town in the winter this is the time to load the car, buy some plane tickets, and head this direction! This is an event you do not want to miss.
My favorite even is the polar plunge in which contestants must dive into freezing cold waters for a prize. There are a bunch of dance parties, contests, and family friendly events all week long.
