Starry Nights: Lunar Eclipse
It has been several years since there has been a total lunar eclipse visible in New Mexico so head over to the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science to check it out at the Observatory. Before the eclipse, planetarium shows will explain why they occur. It's going to be a late night, so be sure you have some coffee on hand for Tuesday morning.

It's spring break at APS and the Balloon Museum continues the celebration. No school means plenty of time to fly kites, enjoy live music and entertainment, make super paper airplanes, enjoy a picnic and more. This is the 6th annual celebration of spring break at the museum.

Hip Hop and Beyond with Budo
If the thought of preparing a big Easter meal yourself isn't very appetizing, this event is. Hotel Andaluz has prepared a brunch the whole family will appreciate. From a meet and greet with the Easter Bunny, to a fun photobooth, to a champagne brunch, it's the place to be if you want to hop out of the kitchen and just enjoy an egg-cellent meal.
