Festivities include live music, dance performances by Salt Fire Circus and Mataholla Moon Belly Dance, local food and beverages, fire spinners, jugglers, great food, hot chocolate, local beer and wine, and much more.

First Night Durango Logistics
10th and 11th Street blocks will be closed to traffic and open to the public from 7:00 in the evening until 1:00 in the morning. Street activities, which include the Durango Mountain Resort and Inferno Snowboard Competition, the Grand Snowflake Drop, and other activities, are FREE to the public. If you want to stay warm,  you can visit the Alpine Bank Warming Tents in the Alpine Bank parking lot and enjoy hot chocolate, live music, Top Hat Shop, games, and entertainment until the midnight hour.

For those adults wanting a VIP location to ring in the New Year with a bang, Bubbly is the place to be—enjoy an evening full of sparkling wine and cupcakes. Bubbly participants will receive a VIP viewing location of the Grand Snowflake Drop, a 2011 signature champagne flute, unlimited tastings, access to a cash bar, appetizers, one ticket for the classic photo booth, music, and the most outstanding downtown lounge. KSUT’s Kenny B will DJ.
