The popular annual Donkey Derby Days event in Cripple Creek has been canceled due to COVID-19.
Never fear, the donkeys will still be their stubborn, finicky selves this summer. Just not in June. The 89th annual Donkey Derby Days has been rescheduled from June to September.
The gun goes off, and the donkeys stumble over the start line. It’s a race to the finish, and observers roar with excitement.
