And it’s all free!

The events run on selected Wednesdays in summer 2014, and the remaining ones are on July 23 and August 6.

Don’t miss the Route 66 Summerfest: Saturday, July 19 in Nob Hill – many events are scheduled throughout the afternoon and evening

There’s nothing like a street festival to make the most of summer – and is there anywhere better for a street festival than old Route 66 herself? We think not. Join the Albuquerque Route 66 Summerfest party on Saturday July 19, 2014, for free live entertainment, car cruise, and more…

Route 66 Summerfest in Nob Hill kicks off at 2 pm through 10:30 pm on July 19, and the free festivities include a car show, live music and dancing, kids’ activities, an arts and artisans’ market, and sidewalk sales. Some highlights:

New Mexico Route 66 Association’s Car Show all afternoon on Central between Carlisle and Montclaire, with the annual Neon Cruise starting at 8:30 pm.
The KidZone offers performances by and for children and teens, and a climbing wall, face painting and inflatables, on Central Avenue between Wellesley and Tulane.
Summerfest music (in partnership with the New Mexico Jazz Festival) starts at 2:45 pm on the main stage (Central & Girard) and at 2:30 pm on the East Stage (Central & Washington). A great line-up of performers including Main Stage headline acts Raul Midon (7:40 pm) and Arrested Development (9:00 pm). The headline act on the East Stage is Son Como Son at 8:20 pm.
Route 66 Cork & Tap has its own stage and beer garden, with local breweries on site, a food truck rumble, and music including Floozy, the Cali Shaw Band and headliner Mil-Tones Brass Band, all at Central and Montclaire.
Mother Road Art and Artisan’s Market showing local arts and crafts between Dartmouth and Bryn Mawr.
Free Group Wedding at 6 pm by A Celebration of Love Wedding Chapel, with the county clerk present to issue marriage certificates, at the Main Stage (Central and Girard).

Check out the full schedule of Route 66 Summerfest events and times. They also have a very handy map so you can see what’s where.

Who the Heck was Bezemek ?

Bob Smith speaks on James Bezemek, one of the most successful dairy owners and a prominent five-term county commissioner in the 20th century. He is virtually unknown now but you’ll learn about the career of this fascinating man and his family at the July 20 Meeting of the Albuquerque Historical Society when Bob Smith presents ”Who the Heck Was Bezemek?” Bob was a history major at ENMU and UNM in 1968-70, where he enrolled after four years in the Air Force, following graduation from high school in Galesburg, Illinois in 1963. Bob never completed his degree, but now that he is a retiree with time on his hands, has begun a new career as an amateur historian. Bob has spent the last two years researching the history of the Albuquerque dairy industry and hopes to be able to tell that story in full detail soon. Continue Reading »

Please join us for the seventh presentation in the 2014 New Mexico Veterans’ Memorial Foundation Veterans Presentation Series on Saturday, July 12, 2014, beginning at 9:30 a.m at the New Mexico Veterans’ Memorial located at 1100 Louisiana B. SE which will feature Ms Peg Moneymaker, a U.S. Army IXth Corp Medical Corp physical therapist who supported the 11th Airborne Division and other troops during the occupation of Japan from 1945 to 1948.

After completing her physical therapist education, Ms. Moneymaker was recruited by both the Army and Navy in 1945 to provide physical therapy for GIs wounded in WWII. Selecting the Army because of the opportunity to travel, she was commissioned as a 2nd lieutenant in the Medical Corp and sent to join the 128th Station Hospital in the Pacific.

Attached is a flyer for posting and sharing with family & friends!! Call 256-2042 for more information on this presentation.

Hope to see you there!
