The 2012 Pagosa Springs Fourth of July Parade had special meaning this dry year with the fires we’ve experienced throughout Colorado. The crowd seemed much bigger and the temperature was definitely cooler this morning for another great small town parade.

Below are three videos showing the entire parade along with more great photographs and a special fast-motion stop gap video as well. In all, we shot 33 minutes of HD video, shot 200 photos and took 1,325 pictures with the GoPro Hero 2 for our fast-action stop-gap video. Feel free to share with your friends and remember that you can always email me to request a special picture you’d like to share for non-commercial purposes.

Here is the Stop Gap Video at only .5 seconds. I liked the fast motion better.

 

 

We had a perfect Pagosa crystal blue sky this year for Gecko’s Pagosa Rapids & Rythms River Fest on the San Juan River.  Morgan Murri and his crew had the music blaring through downtown as the crowd enjoyed a day kayaking expertise, river jousting and river dog fetching. Be sure to mark the event on next year’s calendar. Well worth the visit.

Below are parts 1 & 2 of the video coverage. Following are some fun videos of the Boater-X Race and the River Joust competition is regular and fast motion speeds followed by more great photos. Enjoy!

We had another perfect day for our annual Fourth of July parade here in Pagosa Springs with less heat than last year’s parade.  Below are photos and videos of this year’s parade taken from my spot just outside of Jim Smith Realty.  The video is four parts this year if you can believe that (Still waiting on YouTube to load Part 3 correctly.  The videos are listed first (with participants listed below each video with the time points they appear on the parade route for quicker access coming soon) with highlighted photos are posted below the videos with even more photos listed in the thumbnails at the bottom of the page.

Well, we were expecting rain today but the weather held up just long enough for us to have a dry 2011 St. Patrick’s Day Parade here in Pagosa Springs. We’re lucky to work at the downtown Jim Smith Realty office where we just step outside our door to watch the parade. “Blink and you miss it,” I always say about the St. Patty’s Parade because it so short.

High Horse Productions just posted their coverage of the parade.  Video below:

What a perfect day for a parade here in Pagosa Springs. This year’s parade was on Saturday, July 3 to accommodate Sunday church services.  The temperature was perfect (not too hot) and the skies were perfect Pagosa blue.

Below is a three part video series covering the entire parade with parade participants listed below each video.  Please contact me for participant misspellings or omissions.

Special thanks again to Billy Joe Willet who describes himself as “a displaced Pagosa Springs refugee.  Left this little piece of heaven in the San Juan Mountains at the age of 17 to join the Navy. Honorable discharged after completed a so called kiddie cruise just under four years. Retired from a major aerospace mfg. and now spend my days nursing aches and pains.”

If you love Pagosa, I encourage you to visit his “Please Turn Back the Years” blog where he says:  “Ever wonder why so much effort is put into growing up and achieving great wealth or stardom? If only we could turn back the years, maybe we would have treasured such simple things as a family at meal time saying a simple prayer of thanks for the biscuits and gravy or a special thanks for a chicken leg from your fathers coup.”

Enjoy the pictures and check out some of his other vintage Pagosa Springs photographs on previous “All Things Pagosa” posts.

Pagosa Springs Relay For Life — 2010 Pagosa Springs, Colorado St. Patrick’s Day Parade Photo

We all enjoyed a gorgeous day in Pagosa Springs today for the 2010 St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The temperature rose to the high 50’s with crystal blue skies and a festive atmosphere.

My pictures are never too impressive with this parade because of the position of the sun in the late afternoon. I’m hoping the organizers will consider reversing the route so the parade runs east to west from now on. That way the sun will be at the viewers’ back with the mountains behind the participants.

Enjoy the pictures below of the 2008 Pagosa Springs St. Patrick’s Day Parade which ran along Hwy 160 from Sixth Street east to Second Street.  I believe we had about 25 participants with prizes awarded to  best overall entry, the greenest entry and the most bizarre entry.  Please visit my Pagosa Springs Real Estate website to view and download individual pictures of the parade.
