Make plans to enjoy a fun, family evening at the New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum in Las Cruces on July 28.

The second-annual Summertime on the Farm begins at 4 p.m. with most of the activities continuing until 7 p.m.

Learn how to make ice cream using a Ziplock bag and enjoy your treat. Take a trolley ride around the Museum’s livestock corrals and barns. Check out the various demonstrations, including milking by Southwest Dairy Farmers. Enjoy games, activities, and the scavenger hunt, or shop at the plant sale.

Children 12 and under can participate in the annual bicycle parade at 5 p.m. Costumes and decorations are encouraged, and prizes will be awarded. The Museum is not responsible for unsecured bikes.

There also will be pony rides for children ($5 per ride) from 5:30-7 p.m.

Food trucks will be on hand, including Mad Street BBQ and Rez Tacos. Also enjoy cotton candy and other treats.

As the evening begins to cool, enjoy live music by the Rockin’ Blue Geckos from 7-9 p.m. on the grass in the Museum’s Heritage Garden. The five-piece band plays everything from country, to rock, to blues. Bring your blankets or folding chairs.

Admission for the entire event is $20 per carload. Most of the activities will take place from 4-7 p.m. before the concert begins. Admission includes all of the Museum’s regular offerings, including exhibits.

This event is being held in conjunction with 4-H Achievement Week and projects created by their members will be on display.

Pets are not allowed at the Museum and alcohol cannot be brought onto the premises.
