(LAS CRUCES) —On September 1st, Las Cruces area tourism, business and conservation organizations launched a month-long celebration of the positive community and economic benefits of the region’s Organ Mountain-Desert Peaks, Prehistoric Trackways and White Sands National Monuments.
The 2nd Annual Monuments to Main Street Month is a celebration of the events, the protected public lands that surround Las Cruces, and the opportunities that both offer to the residents and visitors to our area.
To culminate the month of celebrations, The Las Cruces Green Chamber of Commerce, along with Nuestra Tierra, and the Friends of the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks, presents the “Mariachis en Las Montañas” concert on Saturday, September 30th at 6pm. The concert will be held at the La Cueva Group site at Dripping Springs in the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument. The concert is FREE and open to the public. Attendees are encouraged to bring a picnic dinner and chairs as provided seating space is limited.
“Featuring some incredible Mariachi groups like Mariachi Gavilán de Centennial High School and Mariachi Jalisciense performing with our beautiful Organ Mountains in the background is the perfect way to end Mounuments to Main Street Month. PLUS, the one and only Orlando-Antonio Jimenez will be singing along with both groups. What an incredible way to highlight the importance of the culture of New Mexico and protecting our public lands,” says Carrie Hamblen, CEO/President of the Las Cruces Green Chamber.
The FREE concert is open to the public. The concert will take place at the Amphitheater at the La Cueva Group site. NO parking or permits required as it is National Public Lands Day and all fees are waived.
Come join us and embrace our public lands, our culture, and to listen to some great Mariachi Music!
