The weekend before the Easter holiday

It’s getting harder and harder to keep up with all the events taking place in this area!

Saturday morning is going to be perfect for the Loving Laredo Hikes hosted by RGISC (Rio Grande International Study Center). The organizers tell us that this will be great for “beginner” hikers, meaning that it will not be too hilly, too rough and definitely no lions, tigers and bears :P.

That is not the only active event that is inviting beginners. The PedalHeads group along with Ciclomania are hosting a challenge at the new “Shiloh Trails.”

This event is an off road mountain bike race. It will take place at the City Of Laredo Shiloh Trails.

This is going to be a great event with music and food so bring your family and friends and have then watch the race!!!

See you there!!!!!!!


I didn’t get my bike fixed so no HOW am I going to join them??? I might still go out to cheer everyone on and donate for a bikes for kids.

Unless… unless Mr. Jaime Maussan, reknown paranormal journalist dude, attracts UFOs that will interfere with the early morning bike ride and then the other event I had my eye on for this weekend.

I’m going to try to catch the Laredo Little Theater’s production of The Complete Abridged Works of William Shakespeare.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

If I end up doing nothing except for what about 99.9% of Laredo does on weekends… the ever so popular carne asada … one thing to watch out for (I know, I know, que mata rollo):

Guess I will just risk it as I watch the beginning of the Easter vacationers from Mexico heading into the U.S. for viewing of our beautiful downtown, ok, maybe not, but definitely for some heavy duty shopping.

    We had to miss the LLT production! I hated to miss it! Both kids ended up being sick (one with food poisoning)….ugh. I’m hoping it was recorded so I can watch it still.
