I Wanna Be a Cowboy, Baby
Edgewood is a literally-named and countrified community just east of Tijeras canyon. It's at a geographic nexus where the Rocky Mountains literally meet up with the great plains that stretch out toward the eastern horizon. The area's long been the domain of cattle and cowboys and that shows in the culture found in those nearby yet distant from the hustle and bustle of Albuquerque towns like Edgewood, Stanley and Estancia. During the last half of June, the town of Edgewood hosts Cowboy Days, a series of events filled with activities and entertainment―like a world-class car show, local wildlife festival and single action shooting contest―all about the rural eastern part of our state, where cowboys are still common place and deeply valued. On Thursday, June 21 the festival features a Music and Brews Night, hosted by Sierra Blanca Brewing, from 5 to 9pm at the Wildlife West Nature Park. That's located off of I-40 in Edgewood, and it's before you pass the Walmart headed toward Tucumcari. Several locally notable and twangy bands are on hand to help tip back that barley soda, so you oughta go. The event is free, so saddle up, pard.
