1st Ever Ever Ever Albuquerque Couch Crash (Oct 4-7): Columbus Day Weekend - Save the Date
Posted August 7th, 2012 - 7:46 am by from Park City, United States (Permalink)
Save the Date (Oct 4-7)

Have you ever wanted to travel to New Mexico, but just couldn't find the time or a reason? Do you like spicy food, curious about what a Burqueño is, want to try flatwater kayaking, enjoy fractals, want be part of a hot air balloon chase crew, prefer exploring a city on your own, or want to check out the local hashing kennel? Well here is your chance to experience all of this and more in a pet-friendly and kid-friendly environment! We're hosting the first ever ABQ Couch Crash event this October during the largest hot air balloon festival in the world and the annual Grecian Festival. Come join the local CSers for some fun filled urban and outdoor activities as we showcase our city to you during our statehood's 100th birthday. New Mexico isn't nicknamed the Land of Enchantment for nothing. We want to show you that our awesome walkable and bicycle-friendly city is more than just a pit stop on I-40 when traveling east/west across the country, so don't forget to bring your bike and lock (but we have local rentals).
