Celebrate America, New Mexico and the Old West this weekend at Western Day at Albuquerque's famous Old Town. Meander through your favorite shops, browse book booths manned by The Western Writers of America and enjoy tasty barbecue, live music and kids' activities in the plaza. Jim Jones, a finalist for WMA Songwriter of the Year in 2012, will entertain with musical stories of cattle wranglers and railroads, and the High Desert Dancers will put on an interactive show. B.G. Burr, Sheriff of the Central New Mexico Corral will offer a fun and educational presentation on the territorial/cowboy era in New Mexico. Get some DIY inspiration from blacksmith and leather-working demonstrations and bring home a special trinket from one of the many special-item tables that will be set up by Old Town's most popular shops. So grab your favorite pair of boots, cinch up your bolo tie, bring your BBQ bibs and mosey on down for an afternoon of old-timey fun. (Emily Aragon)
