79th annual Donkey Derby Days

When: June 26-27 2010

For a re-DONK-ulous good time today, look no further than the 79th annual Donkey Derby Days on Bennett Avenue in Cripple Creek (visitcripplecreek.com). Start the day with a 7 a.m. pancake breakfast in the street followed by a variety of contests ranging from donkey calling to tobacco spitting. Adults can enjoy live music, a beer garden and steak dinner cook-out, while kids can pan for gold and take donkey rides. This family-friendly event also runs all day Saturday and admission is free. You can end the day by literally hauling your ass to the donkey races at 1:30 p.m. — Kelsey Fowler
