Jump start the festival weekend on Friday and head on down to Colorado Avenue from 4:30-6:30pm. Telluride’s main street is the host of the Cool Cars on Colorado event, showcasing the unique vintage cars that will be staged along the historic street. Be ready to snap some pictures — the San Juan mountains and the fall foliage serve as the backdrop for the classic vehicles shining in the sun.
