Love Mariachi's? Then Las cruces is the place to be this Saturday for the International Mariachi Competition and Mercado!

The International Mariachi Competition and Mercado is an event the whole family can enjoy and is something Las Cruces is all about. The City of the Crosses has always been rich in the Mexican culture and mariachi performances are amazing from local performers to many brought in from around the world!
