Kathryne Giuliano, 86, left, and Julia Scarafiotti, 84, wave to the crowd as they ride down Main Street in the back of a carriage in the Aguilar Days Festival parade in Aguilar, Colo. July 16, 2006. Giuliano was born and raised in Aguilar, population of roughly 600, and Scarafiotti has lived there for the past 63 years. Aguilar once prospered from the numerous coal mines in the area, but over the years the town has dwindled as many of its residents, mainly young people, are forced to leave in order to find work. But every July hundreds of people who left Aguilar return for the annual Aguilar Days Festival for three days of celebrating and remembering days past.
