Carnuel Road Parade and Fiesta
Saturday September 21st, 2013
The annual Carnuel Road Parade and Fiesta is held in late September along Mountain Road at the northern edge of downtown Albuquerque. The event is an outgrowth of the Sawmill/Wells Park Metropolitan Redevelopment Area (MRA) Plan
in which local residents expressed the desire for an annual event celebrating the area’s rich history and cultural diversity. The event also seeks to build community and spreads the word about life-long learning opportunities and social resources.
The Carnuel Road Parade & Fiesta is at once a neighborhood celebration and community development initiative planned by the Education Committee for the Sawmill/Wells Park MRA.
Do you want to be involved?
If you are an organization, community group, arts & crafts vendor or interested resident that would like to participate in the Parade/Fiesta as a planner or participant, please contact Lita Sandoval
at Escuela del Sol Montessori.
Neighborhood groups, car clubs, youth performances, non-profits and arts & crafts vendors come out in force for this annual celebration of local pride and heritage. Free performances, music, games, and art-making made this a great activity for the whole family. See pictures from previous years on our Facebook page.
