"Celebration of Wind" in Rawlins

The entire I-80 corridor, from Pine Bluffs on the Nebraska border to Evanston on the edge of Utah, is wind country.

Rawlins doesn't seem to be any windier than Cheyenne, but it is is adjacent to one of the largest wind farms in the state. The city is hosting its "Celebration of Wind" on Friday and Saturday, April 24-25. The event includes lectures and demonstrations on wind energy, activities in the schools, dinners, kite flying, weather stations, radio-controlled helicopters and display booths. Locations include Rawlins High School, 1401 Colorado, and the Depot, 400 W. Front St., and Carbon County Fairgrounds. Most events are free.
