The Village of Tijeras (east of Albuquerque and off of I-40) had their 40th anniversary celebration yesterday.
We had a really good time on a beautiful New Mexico day.
We saw cool cars, an old firetruck, local vendors peddling their wares, a food truck, muscle law enforcement vehicles, a silent auction in a beautifully restored church, and, lots of families enjoying themselves.
The car show.
Our very favorite car show entry.
A special shout out to the keeper of the car show trophies, Joe Klaus. He told us about the festivities.
A band played under the gazebo.
Local law enforcement was represented.
A silent auction in the Santo Nino church.
The New Mexico Territorial Brass Band played some big, bold foot tapping tunes (and they had on great costumes.)
A little slice of Americana in our beautiful east mountains.
Last, but certainly not least, we were treated to free ice cream cones at the Senior Center. What a great day. :-)
