New Mexico’s State Fair kicked off Friday and to celebrate, the Nativo Lodge is offering a special package. For $129 per night, families of up to four people will receive accommodations (with one king or two double beds), daily breakfast, four one-day passes to the Fair, and one parking pass.
The Nativo Lodge offers spacious rooms decorated with Native American touches. The property features a pool and Jacuzzi, free (and reliable) wi-fi, free parking, and a weekday Happy Hour reception. Rooms with breakfast normally start at $119 per night, so if you plan to visit the Fair, this is a good deal.
The New Mexico State Fair runs through September 27 and costs $7 per day for adults. The Fair showcases Native American, Hispanic, and African American cultures, and includes live music performances, livestock competitions, horse shows, and a rodeo. The Fair is held in northwest Albuquerque, less than 10-minutes by car from the hotel.
Finding this photo in the Gadling Flickr pool took me on a trip down memory lane when I once went to a rodeo. It was the one and only rodeo I have been to and I don’t think I’ll be making it to many more. As a child it tore my heart to pieces to see the animals treated in such a manner and so I rooted every time the bucking broncos and bulls got extra excited and out of control. Anyhow, I noticed the photographer; vyxle tagged this shot with the words “body language.” From the back I can’t tell much, but I’m guessing it wasn’t such a hot day for the cowboy.
Any additional notes for us vyxle?
