It’s a month away from the 10th annual Mancos Melt, and all bed racers – professionals and amateurs alike – are encouraged to register now for the morning race on March 16.
The Melt is a celebration of the start of spring for the Mancos Valley, and traditionally features a golf tournament and, of course, bed races. This is the second year that the event is being organized by the Mancos Creative District, and its theme will follow that of last year’s: “A Spark of Burning Man,” after the famed summer festival in which artists collect in the Nevada desert to build a temporary city.
The three-day Melt will take place March 14-16. The events calendar has yet to be released, but some of the festivities include wine tasting at OLIO – Food Wine Art, music at Millwood Junction Restaurant and at the Mancos Brewing Co., a fun run/walk, and more.
Registration for the bed race is $50, with proceeds going to support Mancos Creative District programs and events. For more information and to register, call Anne Beach at 946-6507.
