Crowds flock to SOMOS ABQ despite rainy weather

Saturday’s wet weather did not stop people from showing up to SOMOS ABQ.

The citizen-organized festival on Central featured food, music, arts and more.

Downtown businesses wanted to promote the area as a great place for families to hang out. 

Vendors and artists say SOMOS ABQ gives them a chance to reach more people. 

“It’s an amazing thing. You rarely get a chance to show so many people at once your work and everyone is doing their own thing and it’s cool they get drawn to this,” says Reyes Padilla, visual artist.

This was the event’s second year.
