Jennifer Borja, 41, of Trinidad, dances with her father Martin Gonzales, 66, of Aguilar, in the middle of Main Street at the Aguilar Days Festival street dance in Aguilar, Colo. July 15, 2006. Like many people who grew up in Aguilar, Borja eventually moved away, but she returns each year for the annual celebration. 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, were 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.(DARIN MCGREGOR/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS) **Jennifer Borja (cq) **Martin Gonzales (cq)
