MONTE VISTA — There are still 15 metal crane silhouettes available for businesses or individuals wishing to sponsor a crane for this year’s, “Swoop of the Cranes.”
After the success of last year’s beautiful metal cranes that were mounted on light posts all over town, the Monte Vista Chamber of Commerce and Monte Vista Crane Festival organizers hope to have even more this year.
To sponsor a crane for this year the cost is $150. They are hoping to auction the cranes again this year this fall. If interested, call the Monte Vista Chamber of Commerce at 719-852-2731. More information can also be found on their website.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Monte Vista Crane Festival organizers have cancelled the bus tours and local public events for 2021. Instead, organizers are working on an online crane festival.
