2014 Franklin Mountains Poppies Fest is this Weekend

Franklin Mountains Poppies Fest/Facebook

One of the more beautiful signs it’s springtime in El Paso is when the Mexican Gold Poppies explode out of hibernation to blanket the Franklins like a golden carpet. And there’s no better time and place to see the spectacular sight than this weekend at the annual Franklin Mountains Poppies Fest on Castner Range.

The free event is this Saturday, March 29 from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm at the El Paso Museum of Archaeology, 4301 Woodrow Bean Transmountain Road. Expect a full day of nature walks, nature talks, wildlife displays including a live wolf and hawk, educational exhibits, and music.

Parking is also free, but will not be allowed at the museum. Instead you’re asked to park at the El Paso Community College Transmountain campus (Diana exit, off U.S. 54) and board a free ADA accessible shuttle to and from the Poppies Fest.

This Saturday put on some walking shorts, grab a cap, lather on the sunscreen, and become one with nature at the 8th Annual Franklin Mountains Poppies Fest. And don’t forget your camera!
