Sack Race

203 S. Main St. behind the Welcome Center, along the Riverwalk
Jane Rankin

Behind the Welcome Center in downtown Breckenridge, a bronze sculpture of three children captures the innocent glee of a sack race, evoking family fun, childhood memories, and the nostalgia of yesteryear. The piece is based on an old newspaper clipping of the artist’s childhood friend competing in a sack race. Donated to the Breckenridge public art collection by the Bunchman family, “Sack Race” commemorates Pat and Harry Bunchman, who supported the development and beautification of Breckenridge since the 1960’s.

Donated by the Bunchmans in memory of Pat and Harry Bunchman
