Gold Rush Days

Local
Jul 19 - 21, 2019
Victor Lowell Thomas Museum
298 Victor Ave.
Victor, CO 80860

Gold Rush Days started in 1895 as the “World Celebration” in celebration of the town's incorporation as a city July 16, 1894, and honored Victor C. Adams, one of Victor's original settlers, and the man Victor was named after. Because mining moved into the area and changed the face of the town, the celebration was next billed as the “Annual Miners Reunion” and consisted of a carnival and street parade.

The Miners Reunion continued until 1899 when a fire destroyed most of downtown Victor and some of the surrounding residential areas. Following the fire, the next celebration was in 1904. Ringling Brothers was the featured attraction. They set up their “big top” at the corner of Fourth Street and Victor Avenue. The famous picture of the tight-wire walker balancing on the wire above a street full of people is said to have been taken during this celebration. The population of Victor was approximately 8,000 people at that time.

The celebration continued uninterrupted until WWI when the celebration was stopped for two years. After the war, it started up again in 1918. The main attractions at that time were the hard rock drilling contests and the timed races of all the fire departments in the district.

After WWII the name changed to Gold Rush Days. During this period, Lowell Thomas, Governor Ralph Carr and other dignitaries came to ride in the parade and enjoy the fun with the Victor residents.

Gold Rush Days has continued uninterrupted since it claimed that name after WWII. The size of the festival has fluctuated from year-to-year. Some years, rain has been a factor in keeping the crowd small. Other years, Victor citizens just didn't feel much like celebrating as they anxiously awaited news from men who were fighting in yet another war.

Salute to American Veterans Rally & POW/MIA Recognition Ride

Local
Aug 16 - 18, 2019
Cripple Creek,

Colorado's largest procession of motorcycles Celebrates 32 YEARS in 2019!
 
The annual Colorado POW/MIA Recognition Ride celebrates its 32nd Anniversary this August. This spectacular show of respect and admiration for America's Prisoners of War and those still Missing in Action began as a very humble effort by a few Southern Colorado Bikers who wanted to make a statement.
 
In 1987, The crew at High Country Custom Cycles rounded up some Friends, Veterans & local Bikers, and organized a gathering at the shop on a warm Sunday morning. The group affixed POW/MIA flags to their motorcycles and headed out. The strategy was to make as much noise as possible and hopefully get the attention of some of the local citizens. The effort ended up accomplishing much more.
 
Year after year, the POW/MIA Recognition Ride continued to flourish in Colorado Springs. The ride grew from a dozen or so motorcycles to 100 the second year and many hundreds after that. Over the next several years, the ride turned into an overnighter, attracted vendors and ultimately gave birth to what is now known as the Salute to American Veterans rally held annually in Cripple Creek.
 
From its humble beginnings, the ride has always been a volunteer effort. Just one year younger than the infamous “Rolling Thunder” ride on Washington DC, Colorado's POW/MIA Recognition Ride has maintained its integrity and its longevity, proving that it is a solid proposition worthy of the support of all of Colorado's motorcyclists.
 
One participant had this to say: “If you've never been on this ride, you owe it to yourself to do it at least once. I have never felt so proud to be an American as I did when we crested the hill and rolled into Cripple Creek … met by those thousands of patriots and that huge American flag. It sent shivers up my spine and the feelings of pride and patriotism were like none I had ever felt.”
