Put on your cowboy boots and dig out your corn dog pants, it’s the New Mexico State Fair! Rides, livestock, rodeo, horse racing, cultural music and dance, agricultural and art exhibits–not to mention freakishly large turkey legs and all manner of fried food–will thrill crowds Sept. 9-25. PBR bull riding is Sept. 10, and after-rodeo concerts this year include Craig Morgan, Rodney Atkins, Joe Diffie, Easton Corbin, David Nail and Restless Heart. Admission is $7 adults; $5 kids 6-12; kids 0-5 free and seniors (62+) $5. Parking is $7. The Fair is closed Mondays and Tuesdays this year. Wednesdays are 2 for 1 admission. Opening day admission is $2, regardless of age and time of day. The fair, held at Expo New Mexico, is located at 300 San Pedro NE, Albuquerque NM 87108. Click here for more information.
