Poppies Fest - 2017 - Picture Of The Week

Dancers performing at the Poppies Fest - 2017. One of the more colorful signs it’s springtime in El Paso is when the Mexican Gold Poppies come out of hibernation and dot Castner Range in a blaze of yellow.

And there’s no better time and place to see the picturesque landscape than at the annual Poppies Fest. The free family-friendly event is this Saturday, April 1, 2017 at the El Paso Museum of Archaeology on Transmountain Road from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
