There are several very large abandoned buildings in downtown Albuquerque that were once a steam engine company. A few years ago a group got together to turn at least part of the real estate into something that would serve to bring the community together. The Yard, as it is known was spruced up just enough to meet safety code and it now opens every Sunday from noon to about three in the afternoon to serve as a combination farmers' market, small local vendor outlet, local food servers and, of course, with some local entertainment. My brother, Steve, has wanted to shoot on the site for years! Finally, we could go in with cameras and enjoy the festivities.
We had a really great time. I hope to return with Tom. This is a festival not to be missed if you are in the area on a Sunday.
