Fairplay celebrated the 71st annual Burro Days on July 28, which is always held during the last full weekend in July. Weekend events include llama races, kiddies pack dog races, gold panning, a parade, outhouse races, 145 arts and crafts, and food booths. The biggest event, though, is the Pack Burro Race. There are two races: a 15-miler and a 25-miler. Typically, the longer race goes up and over Mosquito Pass, but because there was still so much snow, organizers had to shorten the race.
