Pack Burro Race presented by Southern Teller County Focus Group at Victor Lowell Thomas Museum, Victor CO

Experience a day of fast and furious (sometimes furry) racing that must be seen to be believed. Load up the kids of all ages and come to historic Victor Saturday, Sept. 8 for a day of four-footed races packed with old-time fun.

The annual Victor Pack Burro race will kick off at Noon in downtown with racers from across the region competing for cash prizes.

The furry four-footeds are historically dubbed the Rocky Mountain Canary for their role in underground mining; the burros were used above ground during the gold rush era for hauling heavy loads, but also underground in the mines for the same tasks.

Today the burros are beloved symbols of days gone by and are, along with their trainers and human counterparts, the centerpiece of this event.

After the race, hang out in the new Pinnacle Park downtown plaza and check out the participating asses and meet their humans. All racing burros will be entered into a Nicest Ass Contest with prizes awarded.

The Victor Elks Lodge will have music and their bar will be open.
