  • See the Plants to Help the Animals

    While the global pandemic has been a mixed bag for animals worldwide, ranging from an increase in poaching on some quit wildlife preserves, to adventurous creatures expanding their range with fewer meddlesome humans around, zoos, and the animals within, have struggled. Some zoo critters miss the human interaction, and some are enjoying the break, but the people that have to come up with the money to feed and care for them are facing tough economic realities. All this is a way to say, that you can support the zoo animals by going to the Botanical Gardens. True, you won't see many animals (Coy, ducks and maybe a lizard) the plants are incredible and ticket sales benefit the entire ABQ BioPark. Plus, it is a safe, all-ages and beautiful way to spend time away from home. The Botanical Gardens are open 9am to 5pm daily. Tickets are $10 for New Mexico residents (with a variety of discounts) and are available by appointment only online at

  • Local Film Showcase

    New Mexico has been a creator hotspot when it comes to film. As one of the states largest industries (pre-COVID-19), we have seen a continual surge of talent locally proving we have what it takes to compete with Hollywood. Now, there’s a way to honor that talent with the Spotlight on NM Filmmakers Showcase At Balloon Fiesta Drive-In. Happening Monday, July 27 at Balloon Fiesta Drive-in (9201 Balloon Museum Dr. NE), you’ll see a collection of shorts films made by local Reel New Mexican Filmmakers brought to you by Friends of New Mexico Film, New Mexico Film & Television Hall of Fame and The Santa Fe Film Festival. The film showcase will begin at 7pm, so be sure to show up and grab the best spot you can. For more information, you can email (Devin D. O’Leary)
