Kahlo Me Maybe: Old Town's Frida Fiesta

By Lisa Barrow [ Wed Jul 16 2014 1:25 PM ]

“I love you more than my own skin,” said Frida Kahlo. “And though you may not love me as much, you do love me a little. Don’t you?” If posterity has any say in the matter, the answer is a resounding Y-E-S. The six decades since Kahlo’s death have only seen adoration amplify for the otherworldly painter who bared her feeling self on canvas. And because we love her so, the Frida Fiesta unleashes in Old Town on Saturday, July 19, from 11am to 8pm.

W!ld Moon Boutique (206½ San Felipe NW) hosts the fourth annual celebration and provides clothing for the Frida Fashion Show in the early afternoon. A Frida parade wends its way through Old Town in the afternoon, and early evening sees a Frida look-alike contest on the Plaza (worth it for the acclamation of exquisite eyebrows alone). The day includes Frida trivia, games and prizes, plus live entertainment from Aztec dance group Kapulli Ehecatl, Mariachi Nuevo Mexico, folklorico dancers and more. Wear your finest chunky jewelry and flowers (or pick some up from Old Town shops) and show some love for a great 20th-century artist. For más information, see wildmoonboutique.com or call 247-7456.
