Locals live up to reputation in Tutu to Brew
A crowd of hundreds turned out Thursday afternoon for the Tutu to Brew bike parade and beer festival, which started at Buckley Park and proceeded up the Animas River Trail to Ska Brewing Co. in Bodo Industrial Park.
“They talked me into wearing this tutu, and, of course, they’re not here,” said Clay Patton, referring to his girlfriend and a few of his female co-workers who were planning to ride in the Tutu to Brew bike parade.
Camping, parking, city closures

Several campgrounds along the Stage I route from Durango to Telluride will offer camping for a fee, and many campsites can be reserved.
These campgrounds will not allow day-use parking for spectators. A number of spectators are expected at Lizard Head Pass for a “King of the Mountain” event. Camping and parking restrictions will be in place at and near Lizard Head Pass, and staff members will direct camping and day-use spectators to appropriate areas.
