For non-Facebook users, here is the link to register, if you choose to. NM Desert Fest 2013 Tickets, Albuquerque - Eventbrite

It is the largest car show of the year. Last year, they had over 500 cars. It is an event to show off your rig. It is $5 to register your vehicle. It is free to anyone that wants to go. You just have to per-register. Vendors do NOT have to pay to attend, but must register as well. All the money and proceeds goes to the local animal shelters and rescues. Here is the info from NM Desert Fest:

NM Desert Fest 2013 is a meet designed to showcase the talent and innovation that fellow New Mexican car enthusiasts have to offer the automotive industry. It can be seen as an opportunity to have your car shine for your creativity and ingenuity, as local professional photographers will be taking pictures of all the cars in attendance. Local Car tuners such as RaceFab, Solid Tech, and Motiva will be in attendance to showcase of their work as well
Aside from bringing some of New Mexico’s talent in one location for one night, NM Desert Fest this year is going to be helping multiple animal shelters around the 505 area and surrounding locations.

Having stunning Cars in attendance, awesome photography, a new location, and a good cause, this third annual NM Desert Fest should be an event to remember. We hosted well over 500 cars last year with at least 1500 attendees. This year we aim to double that number of attendees! So tell your friends and families to come out and support a good cause!

In previous years NM Desert Fest was hosted in conjunction with the UNM parking and transportation services. This year our event will be costing us a bit of money with the new and larger location, and we will be asking all of you to help us recover the costs! A $5.00 per car fee will be expected to be paid and you MUST register to enter your car in this event! A portion of the entry fee will be used to help for the location, and the other portion will be donated to various animal shelters across the city.
Please make sure you use the above address to get to the event (i.e. when inputting into your GPS if you are from out of town or just unfamiliar with the location). Other entrances will be blocked off by Balloon Fiesta Park Staff and you will be forced to drive all the way around (resulting in more time in line).
NOTE: DO NOT ATTEMPT TO ATTEND the event prior to the set time unless you were otherwise invited!
NOTE: Anyone attempting to enter the event prior to the scheduled time will be turned around. This year we will be having animals from the various shelters and we want the animal Rescue organizers to have their time setting up etc. (PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL OF THEIR SPACE AND TIME)
NOTE: NO TOLERANCE WHATSOEVER FOR: 1) burning rubber, 2) immature behavior. Golden rule if you don’t have anything NICE to say don’t say anything at all.
Last but not least, have FUN! We will be having live music this year and a larger space to help accommodate all of the participants and their families.
Register today and enjoy the largest car event of the year, NM Desert 2013!

For anyone that is going...It looks like we will be meeting Saturday evening at Chipotle - San Pedro and Paseo, beside Chik-fil-a. Looks like we will have a good number of Jeeps.
