This photo shows the remaining rubble of once what was once the Fiesta. Once a locals’ favorite, what the Fiesta closed when the pandemic hit and never reopened. Bit by bit over the last few months the building was demolished, first the casino itself was removed, then the cladding from the high-rise hotel, and then, bit by bit, the concrete structure of the hotel was taken down starting at one end. Yesterday even the piles of concrete rubble had been removed and all that was left was the blue dumpsters. A few miles down I 215, the Durango resort is well on its way to completion.
