Santa Fe: City and Fiesta

September 6, 2014

As I said, we are in Santa Fe on the right week end of the year.  The Santa Fe Fiesta is in full swing.
At 9:00 there was a kids parade along with their pets.  We saw mostly dogs, but also cats, snakes, hamsters, ferrets, a whole lot of stuffed animals.

There are many food booths.  A few were selling roasted corn.

We saw a dance called Bailey de Espanola de Santa Fe.

These pre-schooners were really cute.



This town is an arts center.  There are jewelry stores after jewelry stores.  There were lots of tents set up for the Festival selling a wide variety of arts and crafts.

Some of us walked through the art shops on Canyon Road.  Amazing!!  We saw paintings priced upwards of $50,000 and Jan found a rug she liked priced at $16,000.  We wonder if this is where the proverbial 1% comes to buy their art.  We had a great time looking.
