Local tourist information and events.
October 11, 2018 – Gila Regional Medical Center (GRMC), a 68-bed acute care hospital serving Grant County in southwest New Mexico, announced today they will again host a Trunk-or-Treat event this Halloween, October 31, 2018.
Last year was a huge success with many participants coming together to provide a fun and safe place for our community to bring the kids out for a fun night. We estimate that last year’s event was attended by 2000 to 2500 people. This year we are expecting a larger turnout due to the positive responses. We are inviting local businesses to join us in this fun family event.
Here are some details to help you plan:
-The event will be head in the front Parking lot of GRMC on Halloween from 4:00 to 8:00 PM.
Join the Grant County Archaeology Society and the Imogen F. Wilson Education Foundation (501c3) volunteers for a celebration of the archaeology and history of the Mimbres Valley on October 20 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Kick off the morning with cowboy coffee and a biscuit. Then tour the site at 10 am. Lectures and activities follow every hour.
11 a.m., hear about “The Brannins- Early Homesteaders on the Sapillo.”
NOON, learn about “Apaches in the Mimbres and Black Range.” Hear the story of Santiago McKinn and learn of local battle sites.
What's it all about? Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a day to celebrate, remember and prepare special foods in honor of those who have departed. It is believed that the spirit of the dead visit their families. It can be thought of as when the spirits of heaven and earth come together in celebration of the lives of those gone before. The tradition originated with the indigenous people of the American Continent, the Aztec, Toltec, Mayan and Incas. It has evolved into a treasured time within for Hispanic culture as well as being enjoyed by others. It is so perfect an occasion for gathering, learning and sharing with friends and family within our community and beyond.
Grant County 4-H will hold a fall paper clover fundraiser at Tractor Supply Co., will celebrate National 4-H week, will take a picture of you and your pet as a fundraiser at Tractor Supply Co., and will ask for applications for a 4-H scholarship funded by the Grant County Fair Baking contest.
