The New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum will celebrate an old tradition with the annual Blessing of the Fields procession on Wednesday, May 15. Beginning at 10 a.m., the colorful procession around the Museum grounds begins, blessing the animals, plants, acequia and fresh-baked bread. Before the procession, Henry Narvaez, Cacique of Tortugas Pueblo, will lead the prayer to the four directions. The bulto carried during the procession was created by Las Cruces artist Virginia Maria Romero. Visitors who come to the Museum to participate in the procession from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. will not be charged admission.
