Sábado Gigante ... muy Gigante

As New Mexico celebrates 100 years of being one of those 50 stars on the blue upright, the city is planning the largest party ever held in Albuquerque: Centennial Summerfest is from noon to 9:30 p.m. on a closed-off stretch of Central between Second and 10th Streets. Multiple pavilions (including an authentically constructed 19th century Territorial Village) representing the eras of New Mexico's history will offer musical entertainment and dancing. Plenty of food, vintage car shows and an arts market reflect the modern. Centennial Summerfest draws to a close at 8 p.m. with a headlining performance by Los Lobos at Civic Plaza. All events are free to the public. For an extensive schedule of events, visit abqsummerfest.com.

Music to Your Ears

Centennial Summerfest

Though Santa Fe de Nuevo México became a territory of the United States in 1850, six decades passed before it was finally anointed 47th state. Despite ongoing union-joining efforts on the part of the citizenry, the lapse was due to federal government reluctancethe inhabitants here were seen as uncivilized and just not quite Anglo enoughbut in 1912 the state was judged adequately assimilated. This January, New Mexico observed its statehood centennial, and fiestas will continue throughout the year. One of the biggest will be effervescing in Downtown Albuquerque this weekend.
