Carrizozo's Labor Day Fair Offers Wholesome Family Fun

Carrizozo’s Labor Day Street Fair includes obstacle course, goathead contest

Carrizozo's 16th Annual Street Fair offers lots of fun for the family.
Carrizozo's 16th Annual Street Fair offers lots of fun for the family.

Carrizozo –The 16th Annual Street Fair on Monday, Sept. 7, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at McDonald Park offers lots of fun for the entire family.

The Labor Day Street Fair parade starts at 10 a.m., followed by live music, lots of arts and crafts, a variety of foods,a cakewalk, a goathead plant contest, Mike Lagg's well known obstacle course, and the annual commemorative Street Fair t-shirt.

Last year, Ray Dean had been focusing on a humongous goathead plant near the School grounds and was determined to have a contest to see if there was any larger plant around town. This year he's hoping to beat that record! Just be careful handling those stickers!

The cakewalk was also a tremendous success last year, with folks preferring cakes, cupcakes and homemade tortillas, so those will be the items offered this year. And the band will provide the music and comments for the cakewalk.

There will be lots of activities for kids of all ages: the Jumping Bear tent, the bean toss and Mike Lagg's awesome obstacle course (no one knows yet what interesting changes he'll make this year…).

Four different groups will provide music, most of which are returning for repeat performances because they were so well liked in the past!

Because the Street Fair is a main fundraiser for scholarship awards (four were made this year for $2,500), there will be two events especially for adding to them:
  • The annual motorcycle poker ride on Saturday, August 8. Riders will start at McDonald Park and end at the Outpost for a raffle and rally, and
  • The annual birdhouse auction on Saturday, September 5. Completed birdhouses will be around town as they are ready for viewing.
So, come join the fun and festivities and take home a Street Fair t-shirt as a fond memory of your day!

Questions? Call J'Lane Zamora at 575-648-2802.
