What happens when the City of Albuquerque closes down Central between Washington and Girard?
Great things happen. Our historic main thoroughfare fills with people of every shape, age, sex and color. Burquenos from every neighborhood join with skaters, artisans, car junkies, dancers, performers and bystanders to enjoy a day and night together, on the same asphalt, under the same sun, clouds, stars and moon.
This years Summer Fest at Nob Hill was a good time. The crowds seem to be getting larger, and more diverse, for the Nob Hill Summer Fest party each Summer. We like this. Generally, Albuquerque gets along. City sponsored functions, like this one, faciliate community involvement like no other. Unless you want to eat, it is free to walk up and down Central to window shop, watch people, and, listen to really good music.
The City moves these festivities to different locations around Albuquerque - this is one of our favorites.
There was temporary public art.
...and dancing in the streets in front of Rhythm Dance Company.
We got our groove on at the Latin Music dance floor.
We love Albuquerque.
