The Alibi's Weekend Hit List
Last Chance to Dance
Bummed out summer is screeching to a halt? You have one more weekend to revel in the unbearably hot madness as New Mexico State Parks have teamed up and have created some pretty nifty activities for you to enjoy on Labor Day Weekend. At Bottomless Lakes State Park in Roswell, divers can participate in "dive poker" with weighted cards. Divers have all day Saturday and Sunday to retrieve said cards and make a hand.
Check out the "Owl Prowl" at Hyde Memorial State Park Saturday night after the full moon. Take the half mile hike in the pitch black and watch some of nature's most badass predators attack rats, mice and maybe even children. For an entire list of all the state park haps, click on nmparks.com.
The annual Maize Maze at the Rio Grande Community Farm (1701 Montaño NW) is already underway, but for a unique jaunt into the impressive and massive labyrinth of corn, visit the maze this weekend for Moonlight Maze. Use the light of the full moon to find your way as the maze stays open until 10 p.m. for the special trek. The hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Labor Day. Admission is $7 for adults and $3 for kiddies 4-11. Children 4-and-under are free.
