Victor Burro Race
Experience a day of fast and furious (sometimes furry) racing that must be seen to be believed. Load up the kids of all ages and come to historic Victor for a day of four- and two-footed races – a day packed with old-time fun. The annual Victor Pack Burro race will kick off at noon in downtown with racers from across the region competing for cash prizes and a silver coin.
The furry four-footeds are historically dubbed the Rocky Mountain Canary for their role in underground mining; the burros were used above ground during the gold rush era for hauling heavy loads, but also underground in the mines for the same tasks.
Today the burros are beloved symbols of days gone by and are, along with their trainers and human counterparts, the centerpiece of this event.
After the race, hang out in the new Pinnacle Park downtown plaza and check out the participating asses andView more
