4th Annual NM ShamRock Fest


For the fourth year in a row, the New Mexico ShamRock Fest will bring Irish traditions to life at the Anderson Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum. Irish music, dancing, face painting, climbing walls, Irish food, and Celtic games will all be available throughout the day for the entire family to enjoy. There is always plenty to do and see at the festival, and this year should have no shortage of luck. 


Shamrock Shuffle


If you’re looking to stay active and run away from those trying to pinch you for not wearing green, the Shamrock Shuffle 10 Miler, 10K, 5K, and Kids K is the perfect event for you. The races all start and finish at the Rio Rancho Aquatic Center. While pinching is not officially listed as a punishment, you should probably wear green just in case!
