Donkey Derby Days is coming to Cripple Creek and Carr Manor! Carr Manor in Cripple Creek is getting ready for fun, festivities and donkey races at  Donkey Derby Days! June 21-23. People from all over the world descend on downtown, drawn by a chance to watch a race inspired by the town’s resident donkey herd, believed to be distant relatives of the original donkeys from the town’s Gold Rush days. Enjoy games, live entertainment, heritage competitions and don’t miss meeting the new, baby donkeys! Carr Manor owners Gary and Wini Ledford report that the donkeys have been let loose to roam the streets of Cripple Creek.  Donkey's have the right of way, so cars must yield to them.  Their guests love to feed the donkeys and they come to visit often, including the yard (pictured above).
