Press Release [ Thu Mar 9 2017 10:00 AM ]
New to this year's NM ShamRock Fest at the Albuquerque Balloon Museum on Saturday, March 11 is the inaugural NM ShamRock 'N Roll featuring a 5K Run and Fitness Walk, a 1K Kids Fun Run and a quirky Zero K.
Use your imagination and dress creatively in your most outrageous costume or wacky race outfit to run, walk, crawl, etc. Prizes will be awarded for Best Group, Male, Female and Kids costumes.
Come out to experience a unique "fun"draising event like no other. One hundred percent of the Zero K registration fee goes directly to the Balloon Museum Foundation in support of the Museum's educational and public programs.
NM ShamRock 'N Roll participants receive one free admission to the NM ShamRock Fest. All race entries include a NM ShamRock 'N Roll t-shirt and other valuable items from a number of great Balloon Museum and TCR-affiliated merchants.
There will be plenty of Celtic-themed food and treats on hand as well as nearly two dozen vendors and artisans.
Dress you and your dog in green garb and win prizes in the "Lucky Dog" Pet Parade and Costume Contest.
The City of Albuquerque, High Desert Pipes and Drums and TCR Race Productions are presenting this fun day. The mission of High Desert Pipes and Drums is to foster and promote Scottish culture and music, to perform locally, regionally, and throughout the western United States, and to teach the Great Highland Bagpipe & Drums in the tradition as taught by previous professional instructors from Scotland and other countries. Funds raised at NM ShamRock Fest will benefit High Desert Pipes and Drums.
