March 8, 2019

Mayor Tim Keller and One ABQ: Youth Connect will host its Spring into Summer event this Saturday, March 9th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Tiguex Park (1800 Mountain Rd NW, 87104). The City of Albuquerque is celebrating spring and gearing up for summer with activities, entertainment, and information about opportunities available to Albuquerque youth this summer. The event is free and open to all families. 

“Keeping kids safe and engaged while they’re out of school makes a big impact for our families in so many ways,” Mayor Tim Keller said. “We want to make sure families from all walks of life have a chance to learn about all the options for summer programs. Come on down and get a head start on the summer at this free event.”

As temperatures warm up, it is time to start planning for summer programs. Knowing early on about the many out-of-school time programs and key registrations dates will help ensure Albuquerque’s youth will have engaging and fun activities when school lets out. Spring into Summer is a great way to begin this planning with support from the City and community organizations.

All are invited to enjoy live music, special performances, a climbing rock wall, games, food trucks, and more at this informational event. The City offers many affordable and safe opportunities for children of all ages at community centers, the BioPark, city pools, and other City facilities. The following community organizations will also be in attendance with information on additional programs: Albuquerque Dentist Office, Albuquerque Public Schools, American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO), Bernalillo County Sheriff's Office, Boys and Girls Club, Children's Choice, CYFD Protective Services, Explora!, Future Focused Education, Girl Scouts, National Dance Instituto of New Mexico (NDI), Native American Professional Parent Resources, NMX Sports/Warehouse 508, Outcomes, Inc., and YMCA.

Programs will serve youth from birth to teens. Mark your calendars now for summer registration dates. More dates will be released as new programs are added.

During his State of the City address, Mayor Keller announced the One Albuquerque Kids Cabinet and the City’s commitment to support Albuquerque’s youth by continuing to offer opportunities for engagement programs during out-of-school time. In 2018, an additional $1 million was put towards expanding before-school, after-school and summer programs.

Free parking is available in the Albuquerque Museum parking lot on the day of the event.
