Donkey Derby Days 

When: June 23-24 2012

When Charley Lehew and his two business partners pondered how to liven up the Cripple Creek festival, they arrived at one idea: donkey racing. Thanks to them, Donkey Derby Days in downtown Cripple Creek ( has been attracting crowds with this free, family-friendly race for 81 years now. If you missed yesterday's parade, steak dinner and street dance, don't despair, today opens at 8 a.m. with vendors, live entertainment, competitions, a dog show, a beer tent and the titular donkey race at 1:30. It all wraps up at 5 p.m., so this is the last chance to cheer for your favorite jackass. — Sara Horton
