It’s Springtime in the Rockies … and that means baseball, festivals and celebrations.

It’s springtime in Albuquerque – and that means it’s time to get outdoors. We celebrate our 305th birthday in April and Cinco de Mayo in May. The ever-popular Gathering of Nations Pow Wow gets under way on April 28th, the Albuquerque Isotopes launch their baseball season in April, and the Albuquerque Wine Festival kicks off at Balloon Fiesta Park on May 28. Here are a few of our favorite upcoming events:

Founder’s Day Fiesta
April 9, 2011

Come dressed in costume or just to help celebrate – either way Albuquerque’s annual Founder’s Day celebration is always a good time. (It’s our 305th birthday this year.) Enjoy the Parade of Eras around the Plaza in Old Town, live music, dance, and special activities just for the kids in this family-friendly event.
