Celebrate The Holidays In The Southwest
Albuquerque is a beautiful town with plenty to do, especially during the holiday season!
Pueblo Gingerbread House Contest
Whether you want to enter a gingerbread creation or just view the works of art that have been submitted, stopping at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center to see the array of houses is worth the time. This annual contest invites people to design and build ornate, detailed, over-the-top houses out of gingerbread, with all the buildings being inspired by traditional Pueblo structures. The end result is the museum looking like an edible Native American village!
