Let’s get the ore carts decked out before the Burro Races! Everyone is invited to come and create a scarecrow, bring your kids and anyone else that might be interested, many hands make light work.
All components will be supplied, I have enough clothes, body forms, faces and hats to make 18. No straw involved, rafia will be used to stuff around the shirt and pants openings. If you have a special outfit or theme tshirt you’d like to use, bring them! Especially kids “Victor” tshirts. Size 10-12 work best.
We will meet in the west suite of the antlers bldg at 5:30 this coming Thursday Sept 29. Dress warm! Hot drinks and snacks will b provided.
This is an open invitation to the community! Come help dress up our downtown!

On Tuesday, August 8th, 2016, the City of Victor broke ground on their newest project; a downtown community events plaza. The project is being funded through an Energy and Mineral Impact grant from Colorado Department of Local Affairs and a financial contribution from Newmont Mining Inc./Cripple Creek Victor Gold Mine and the City of Victor.
The project will feature an outdoor stage, concessions stand, year-round public restrooms, off-street parking and decorative lighting and plantings. The ribbon cutting will be scheduled for this fall following completion of the project.
