Today, Albuquerque's South Valley residents flanked the length of Isleta Blvd. to watch a parade of marching bands, cheerleaders, politicians, and lowriders as they made their way to Westside Community Center for South Valley Pride Day.
When I was in elementary school, I even nominated my grandma for an Outstanding Citizen Award, which they give to a dozen or so recipients every year. She was awarded primarily for her work with the students at Barcelona Elementary through the Foster Grandparent Program.
So it was really cool to get out today, even with a steady breeze in the air, and watch the parade go by and see the awards handed out.
Here are some pictures from today's event.
