I am single AF! But, I LOVE Valentine's day! I don't let my singleness deter me from enjoying a day of love and chocolate. But I do understand that sometimes Valentine's day can get a little cheesy with all the couples gushing over each other. That is why I've decided to give you a little guide on other cool things you can do in El Paso that aren't over the top cheese.

Kaleidoscope Art Market will be hosting their Valentine's Day market on Friday, February 7th at German Pub at 9530 Viscount. Their "Love Is A Battlefield" night market will feature local art, live performances, food and a cosplay contest all centering on love and the fight behind it.

Join in on the fun and enter the cosplay contest; come dressed as a famous 80's couple (real or from a famous 80's movie) and win prizes! Emily and I will be judges for this contest and we cannot wait to see what the contestants come up with! Performances for the evening include Liz Tina, Hipshum Fusion & Fire Dance Co. and KLAQ's very own Raymon Arreola all hosted by Boosty.

The event is all ages and family friendly. If you haven't found a gift for that special someone, now is the time to check out some great local vendors and get something unique. I look forward to judging the contest, and to checking out this event. You can find out more about this even here, and you can check out Kaleidoscope Art Market's page for other great events they'll be hosting!
