Durango Parade Goers, Be Prepared!
(2008-01-31)
(ksut) - HOST LEAD: If you're planning to attend the big Snowdown parade Friday be prepared.
KSUT's Victor Locke explains.

VICTOR: Wear your snowpants, and pull up a seat on a snowpile!
That's how it may be in downtown Durango for thousands expected to attend the Snowdown parade which begins at 6pm.
This week's snowstorm may have created just the right ambiance for this year's Snowdown celebration.
But it's also created a blizzard of headaches for parade planners and city officials.
First, Main Avenue, the parade route is still crusted with packed snow and ice.
Secondly, many of the sidewalks where those thousands will gather, have piles of snow between the walkways and the street.
Thirdly, downtown parking because of snowpiles etc. is at a premium.
So, what's the answer?
Free transit service will be provided all day tomorrow, including trolley's running every fifteen minutes between downtown and the fairgrounds parking lot...so ride the T.
Parking will be banned on Main starting at 2pm.
And the city plans to put down a heavy layer of sand on main avenue as well.
From KSUT, I'm Victor Locke.
