It may be the last minute, but it’s not too late to plan a getaway to Santa Fe for the long Labor Day weekend. The weather is perfect—warm sunny days and cool evenings—and there’s plenty going on in town, including the Aspen/Santa Fe Ballet, Fiesta de los Niños: A Children’s Celebration at El Rancho de las Golondrinas, the Tomasita’s Lowrider and Custom Car Show in the Railyard, chairlift rides and live music at Ski Santa Fe, and even a spectacular theatrical concert at the Santa Fe Opera theater by Grammy winning Native American musician Robert Mirabal.
There are still openings at Santa Fe hotels and even some special offers to be claimed. Find information on events, lodging and specials on www.santafe.org:
