Last weekend, the town of Rico and the Rico Trails Alliance hosted the third annual Rico Winter Carnival. Carnival attendees enjoyed a variety of winter activities, yoga, a bonfire, a chili potluck and music at the Enterprise Bar and Grill in downtown Rico. The event was a success and could not have happened without the help of many people.
We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the following people and organizations that made this event so much fun.
Thank you to the Rico Trail’s Alliance, Boot Doctors Ski, Snowboard and Bike Shop and Box Canyon Bicycles, who supplied a multitude of loaner fat bikes; Linda and Genevieve Yellowman, who cooked Navajo Tacos; everyone else who brought chili and other yummy treats; Telluride Brewing Co. and Telluride Distillery, who provided tasty beverages; Enterprise Bar and Grill, who brought in Reeder and Spencer for musical entertainment; the Artists of Rico, who organized the snow sculpture/snowman contest; Eliza Gass, who lead a yoga class on Saturday morning; and Ashley Boling, who taught a beginner ski lesson at the park on Sunday.
Thank you to the Rico Trails Alliance and the Rico Parks, Open Space and Trails staff, Esteban Roberts and Mike O’Connor, and all the other volunteers who helped get everything organized. Congratulations to Mike Contillo and Katie Stokes for the best aid station. Most of all, thank you to the visitors and citizens of Rico, without whose participation, the carnival would not have happened
