LIFE IN DURANGO: If anyone wonders what its like to live in Durango they should visit on the 4th of July. Festivities began on July 3rd with the Kiwanis BBQ Cookoff. We set up the smokers at 7:00 a.m. along Main Street at Buckley Park, cooked all day and served the public brisket, sausage & pork shoulder at 4:00 p.m.
July 4th was competition day and we began serving BBQ at 11:00. When all was said and done, our team sold over $4,000 of BBQ for the Kiwanis fundraiser. At the same time, an Arts & Crafts Show was happening in Buckley Park. The crowds were fabulous.

Celebrating July 4, the Declaration of Independence was read for the public, a fantastic patriotic parade proceeded down Main (we have a parade for nearly every occasion) and the day ended with a spectacular fireworks display.

Durango, small town - big people. The only thing missing was Andy Taylor and Barney Fife weren't leading the parade.
