On the way both directions we were joined by a lot of folks going to and from the 27th annual New Mexico Wine Festival in Bernalillo, not far north of Albuquerque. But many were, like us, going to Santa Fe. A major draw this weekend was the Santa Fe Fiestas, held continuously since 1712.
We enjoyed ourselves wandering about among the fiesta booths. We also visited a number of the shops on the Plaza, and the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Francis, a short distance off the city's central square. And we had drinks and snacks (tapas, if you like).
All in all, our holiday jaunt was very enjoyable. It was inexpensive, and avoided hassles with traffic and parking twin issues for so many visits to Santa Fe.
We hope your Labor Day holiday was enjoyable, too!
