DMC Broadcasting and the Córdova family once again invite the families of Northern New Mexico to come together for its extravagant Mothers Day Celebration. T
he annual party has grown in popularity each year, with over 10,000 people attending in 2010. But, truth be told, it did not have small beginnings.
ALBUQUERQUE, NM—On Sunday, May 8, the ABQ BioPark Zoo celebrates Mother’s Day with guests and a special slate of activities. Riders in the Sky plays a concert at 2 p.m., BioPark Education hosts International Migratory Bird Day from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. and guests can vote for the harbor seal pup’s name throughout the day.
When the BioPark learned of the New Mexico Symphony Orchestra’s bankruptcy and cancellation of concerts, they worked quickly to find an alternate concert for Mother’s Day.
Guests can vote for the name of the harbor seal pup born in early April. Voting will take place at the Seal & Sea Lion exhibit and on the BioPark’s Facebook page. The pup remains in a special pool behind-the-scenes for several more weeks until she is eating solid food.
All Mother’s Day activities are included with regular admission. The BioPark is an accessible facility and a division of the City of Albuquerque’s Cultural Services Department. For more information, visit http://www.cabq.gov/biopark or call 311 locally or (505) 768-2000 (Relay NM or 711).
