This year was no exception. There were lots of families thru out the day that enjoyed the festivities that were offered. There were bounce house, dunk tank, water slides, corn hole and i think an inflatable obstacle course. I'm betting some adults got into that one just for fun.Read More
I can not single out one single player for the series. They all played a sa team and brought home the trophy. The games were fun and the players talked it up in the dugout to keep spirits high and everyone motivated. Which always works!Read More
I don't know if they kept score...I didn't. but I know just from seeing the looks on faces from both sides. They had fun and got to live in the moment that as baseball players love. Just to be able to play with brothers who share a love for the game!Read More
Good Day Friends,
Recently Carlsbad NM held their 1st ever annual CavernFest. This was to show what our town has to offer to the tourists that visit us each year, such as home cooked southwest meals (including our favorite green and red chilies),home grown vegetables, arts, crafts, culture and good old hospitality. Of course our National Park "The Carlsbad Caverns".
The day started off with a blessing from Pastor Dave (Thanks Dave for kicking it off the right way), he was also our MC thru-out the day with great commentary. Mayor Dale Janway made a speech accompanied by awarding Karla Hamel for all her hard work putting together the event as the Director of the Carlsbad Mainstreet Project, which created the event and was sponsored by The City of Carlsbad.
Thru out the day there were Barbershop quartets, Bands and face painting. Accompanied with all the local business owners representing Carlsbad with booths and local items from Carlsbad for sale and to promote awareness of the community.
(even a little rain didn't stop the event)
A heartfelt thank you goes to, The City of Carlsbad, Mayor Dale Janway, Karla Hamel, Jason Shirley, Red Rocket Video, Curtis McKinney, Mosaic Potash all the other sponsors and all the volunteers who made this possible.
I'll leave you with slide show of the highlights from the day.
