KREMMLING ” Mountain people have a great sense of humor.

Lightning struck 19 people last year during the Cliff Golf Tournament.

People responded saying the town was crazy for hosting the event in the first place. The town responded by creating this year’s Krazy for Kremmling Days and adding even more activities.

Krazy for Kremmling Days takes place all weekend, beginning today, and yes, the Cliff Golf Tournament is returning at the request of all 19 people who were struck by lightning and survived. Most activities are concentrated around Town Square Park, though a couple activities such as the Mud Bog will take place at County Road 22 starting at 9:30 a.m. Sunday morning. The events scheduled for the weekend include:

– Goodwood plays at 5 p.m. Friday at the Budweiser Beer Garden.

Bring your plate of Fireman’s barbecue and dance to acoustic rock with a genuine Colorado Sound, as well as the Tim Hill Combo, a classic rock and blues band.

– The parade starts at 10 a.m. down Highway 40. The 10k Tail Race and 5k Fun Run also takes place Saturday.

– The Retreads play from 1-3 p.m. Saturday in the park.

– Saturday night the fun continues from 5-10 p.m. when the West Grand Community Educational Fund grills up some brats. The Budweiser Beer garden remains open while everyone is invited to enjoy a bonfire and community street dance. Tempa and the Tantrums infuse the town with funk, zydeco (New Orleans Dixieland sound) and blues.

– Have Bass Will Travel fill the park with country music from 1-3 p.m. Sunday.

– If you’re looking for a good laugh, an Italian comedy juggling and vaudeville variety show ” Handsome Little Devils ” performs throughout the weekend, with a fire juggling act at night.

– The 5th annual Cliff Golf Tournament returns where competitors drive golf balls off the top of the famous Kremmling Cliffs hoping to get a hole in one on one of nine targets at the base of the cliffs. The event will start at 11 a.m. Saturday. Oh, and don’t worry ” a Kremmling Volunteer Fire Marshall will be on the cliffs to keep a close eye on the weather and postpone the event until Sunday if necessary.

The celebration also includes kiddy carnival rides and a petting zoo, a rail jam, snow volleyball, a BMX track and paintball booth and craft and food booths.
