The Telluride Fire Festival is underway. The party started last night and continues through the weekend. Telluride is the definitely the place to be.

The annual nonprofit Telluride Fire Festival is truly a unique event. I had never heard of or had seen anything like it. If you've been before, then you know first hand. For those of us that haven't experienced it yet, I'm excited!

I had posted a few pictures in my reminders about the festival. They really don't do it justice. Check out these videos.

Fire art performances will take place each evening on the public plaza in Mountain Village and on Telluride’s Main Street. The festival is FREE. There is additional ticketed entertainment, including March Fourth Marching Band, and an over-the-top Gala. Free workshops in both welding and fire dancing were also available.
