Pilgrims are trekking, buskers are invading, gardeners are digging and more in Wednesday’s Five Things To Know Before 5.
5. It’s Holy Week for the Christian faith, but all drivers in northern New Mexico need to be alert for the faithful on foot making their pilgrimage to the venerable church el Santuário de Chimayó. One pilgrim already has been hurt when someone driving too fast for conditions slid off U.S. 84-285 and hit the man walking on the shoulder north of Santa Fe.
4. Street musicians and chalk artists invaded Old Town Friday with the music continuing on Saturday for New Mexico Busker Days, part of the state centennial celebration. Details on the Old Town, New Fun website.
3. Bring your own basket and join Saturday’s 13th annual Bernalillo Eggstravaganza egg hunt Saturday at 10 a.m. at Rotary Park in Bernalillo. Open to kids 12 and under. More information from Jason at 238-0689.
2. With winter finally over, maybe, tonight is a good time to boost your gardening skills with a talk on local soils and their relationship to your success. The free gathering sponsored by the local chapter of the Native Plant Society of New Mexico begins at 7 p.m. at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History, 1801 Mountain Road NW near Old Town.
1. What you call a homemade knife prison inmates and staff call shanks, and corrections officers say they’re seeing a lot more of them these days. Reporter Nancy Laflin takes a look at these deadly weapons and why the numbers are up on KRQE News 13 at 10 p.m.
