Special thanks to Photo Booth Rentals of New Mexico and the folks at Foundation Industries and Effex Nightclub for a great night of celebration October 9. And thanks to Buffet King and Cake Fetish for the tasty eats.
The 13th annual Día de los Muertos Marigold Parade went down in the South Valley on Sunday, Nov. 6. The Alibi covered it in this week’s issue; here are those photos along with about 40 others that didn’t make it to print. Enjoy.
We wish we could have run all of the submissions to our 2011 scavenger hunt in the paper. But thanks to the miracle of the Flickr slideshow, we can run them online! Check it out.
A friend sent me this photo. It may or may not be the guy I bumped into Downtown on Saturday who gave me a teener of blue meth (i.e., cotton-candy flavored rock candy). Happy Halloween, Burque!
Alibi contributor Jessica Abeita sent us some images of people watching the supermoon Saturday at West Bluff Park in Albuquerque. Abeita is a graduate student at the University of British Columbia's Graduate School of Journalism. She was also a finalist in the Photographer's Forum 2011 College Contest. Thanks for sending us your snaps, Jes! The last one is particularly gorgeous.
Albuquerque’s Pride Parade must be one of the best-photographed events in town. There’s no shortage of colors, costumes and full-on joy splashing around. These photos are culled from that Alibi’s Flickr photo pool, a Facebook shoutout and my very own camera.
We must wait 361 days to bask in the technicolor “sunshine, lollipops and rainbows” (as Leslie Gore sings) of the most gorgeous parade in Burque. Dig through this slide show and dream about your 2011 float until then.
