So the theme is to hark back to the time when Leadville was in its heyday, and that's the very late 1800's. So the locals actually dress up in costumes for the events, as seen here:
|The one on the right, not the one on the left!|
They also have a car show, and here are some of the highlights of that:
|Lamborghini Countach that is a native of Leadville. Incredibly shocking.|
|Superformance Cobra replica, also a Leadville native.|
|Does this need words? At least it was NOT a Leadville native.|
|They have a great selection of fair food, and today I had a bacon-wrapped sausage on a stick. And homemade potato chips. And awesome sweet tea. What more could you ask for? Oh, I also did a workout earlier...a long walk up a steep hill. Necessary, but booooooring. At least we did it on somewhere I hadn't really seen before, and I did push my bike up so I could ride back down. Matt got a good little workout in by spinning along beside me as I walked, so that was cool. Plus I had someone to talk to!|
Anyway, Boom Days is huge around here, and not a bad way to spend a few afternoon hours, certainly.
