Northern exposure

Durango's historic downtown may be quaint, and the southside will always have a certain charm, but it's high time the north side got a little of its own glory. Last Saturday, the City of Durango and the Business Improvement District organized The Main Event, meant to pay homage to the oft-underrated North Main strip. For four hours, sidewalks from 26th to 30th streets were closed off to make room for food booths, games, socializing and plenty of live music to keep shoes tapping. With hundreds on hand, the Main Event was such as success, the city has given the green light for yearly occurrences so Durangoans no longer need to pick sides.
