Spectacular Things Saturday

Posted by on Feb 22, 2014 in Uncategorized

On Feb. 2 Punxsutawney Phil, the groundhog of groundhogs, rose from his burrow and spotted his shadow. Six more weeks of winter—but Albuquerque is paying no attention to Phil and his legendary shadow, and we’re experiencing lots of warmth.

In fact, it’s so nice that we’re ready to spend our weekend out and about. Don’t know what’s happening out there? Well, you know boredom will never creep into your bones as long as we’re around.

In the Long Run

Sochi, Russia isn’t the only place to catch world-class athletes this month. The USA Indoor Track & Field Championships will continue today, Feb. 22 and Sunday, Feb. 23. Head over to the Albuquerque Convention Center to catch some of the countries fastest moving legs. The nation’s top track and field athletes will be fighting for the chance to represent the U.S. at the IAAF World Indoor Championships in Sopot, Poland in March.

Track spikes will be clacking against the track today from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 12:45 a.m. to 5 p.m. Better grab your tickets.

Snug as a Bug in a Rug

If you haven’t had a chance to head out to Petroglyph National Monument lately, this may be the perfect weekend to do so. Not only will you get to check out the petroglyphs, but you’ll be able to check out the 10th Annual Navajo Rug Show and Sale.

There will be hundreds of gorgeous Navajo weavings to browse through and purchase. The show and sale will be taking place today from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 23, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will be a rug-weaving demonstration and Navajo rug educational talks from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. both days. Admission is free of charge.

Fishing Fair for Kids
Head to Tingley Beach on Feb. 23 for a fun, free day of fishing for children ages 4 to 12. Learn all about fishing at interactive Discovery Stations (New Mexico law requires that 12 year-olds have a fishing license). It all happens at 1800 Tingley Drive SW; call 768-2000 or 311 locally for info.

Looks like our calendars for this weekend are full!
