Hundreds gather for lighting of Durango’s Christmas Tree

Mr. and Mrs Claus delight children as tree sparkles in Buckley Park

Little ones may have been more excited by the horse and wagon that delivered Mr. and Mrs. Claus to Buckley Park on Friday than by the jolly fellow himself.

Hundreds of people of all ages paraded down Main Avenue singing Christmas carols before lighting the community Christmas tree, marking the official start of the holidays.

The event has become a holiday custom for many families, with some adding additional generations to the festivities after decades of participation.

Revelers left filled with the holiday spirit, despite the lack of snow.
