CRIPPLE CREEK, Colo. —  The 86th annual Donkey Derby Days took place this weekend in Cripple Creek.

Live music awoke the crowds early Saturday, just ahead of Bennett Avenue turning into a race track for specially-trained donkeys.

“This pays for all their vet care, their hoof care, their shots and their feed throughout the year,” said Steve Kitzman, Director of Marketing and Events for the City of Cripple Creek.

Donkey Derby Days had exciting events for everyone, including food and craft vendors, a bounce house, donkey rides, and even baby donkeys to check out.
