Oh New Mexico. Between the 10-20 degree drops in temperature and unbelievable, knock-you-down winds, I think we’re finally ready for some consistent weather. This weekend might be beginning of better things to come this spring–but for now, don’t forget to check out these events going on in Albuquerque this weekend:

Support the National Dance Institute of New Mexico Gala for the Imagine the Possibilities Performance tomorrow at 5:30. Head over to the Hiland Theatre for a whimsical, Seuss-themed evening taken from http://www.ndi-nm.org/userfiles/ABQGalaInvite_Page_1.jpgfeaturing 500 students. The evening begins with the performance, followed by dinner and dancing in the Gala tent. For this Dr. Seuss-themed night, men are encouraged to wear bow ties and women to wear hats. It will be a funtastic night for all ages! Tickets: $150 and $1500 for a table.

If you are feeling a little country tonight, check out the Dirty Bourbon Dance Hall and Saloon tonight where the Rankin Twins will be performing starting at 8. These identical twins have been gaining popularity in Texas Countryand with their new full-length album,Moonshine and Maybes, they are breaking the barriers as they demonstrate what pure country really is.

Starting tomorrow, a week-long celebration of Native American culture begins in Old Town Albuquerque for the 34th Annual American Indian Week: Pueblo Days. The week includes two big Indian art markets, sale sin the IPCC gift shop, specials in the Pueblo Harvest Cafe & Bakery and more. Take advantage of this beautiful weekend and join in on this cultural celebration.

Run over to Balloon Fiesta Park on Sunday for the Color Me Rad 5K. The run benefits NMX Youth Sports and you get a t-shirt, a pair of neon 80’s sunglasses as you get plastered by color every five minutes in the race, a “RAD” tattoo and more. Children seven and under run for free with a paying adult. The run starts at 9 a.m. and it’s $50 for late registration.
