Dashing Ducks

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Folks have flocked to Deming for more than 40 years to take in the famous duck races, on land and in water. This year’s 43rd Annual Deming Duck Race takes place August 25-28 at the McKinley Duck Downs in Courthouse Park. While the ducks are the main event,  lots of other family fun takes place over the weekend, including hot air balloon ascensions, a carnival, live entertainment, arts and crafts vendors and food. But that’s not all! Take part in horseshoe pitching, soft-pitch softball and even an outhouse race and tortilla toss. Do’t miss the highlight, the Tournament of Ducks Parade and the Duck Royalty Pageant, where participants whose costumes reflect this year’s theme—“Racing to the Save the Day,” dedicated to the local community heroes—vie for the title of Duck King and Duck Queen.

Rockhound’s Recreation

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can really rock it at Rockhound State Park, 1,100 acres of stunning scenery in the Little Florida Mountains. Established in 1966, Rockhound was the first park in the country to allow visitors to take home the opals, geodes, jasper, quartz crystal and other semi-precious stones they found. The park isn’t just for rockhounds. You can hike, bike, enjoy a picnic and camp beneath endlessly starry skies. Keep an eye out for wildlife, including antelope, deer, badgers, prairie dogs and plenty of birds.

Fun at the Fair

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The annual Southern New Mexico State Fair & Rodeo in nearby Las Cruces September 28-October 2 provides barrels of fun for everyone. Ride the ferris wheel, carousel and other carnival rides and dance to live music by local and national musicians. The action-packed rodeo and livestock judging events are a big draw but don’t miss the stunt dog show, the kiddie stickhorse races and the classic fair food, including BBQ, green chile quesadillas and deep-fried funnel cakes (it wouldn’t be a fair without funnel cakes!).

Raise a Glass to New Mexico Grapes

Calling All Snowbirds!

 

 

When winter’s on its way, it’s time to get away — to Deming in sunny southern New Mexico, where the average daytime high reaches a perfect 64°. Located halfway between Dallas and California, this friendly frontier town in the Old West makes a perfect home base for the season. With spectacular state parks, a world-class museum, award-winning wineries and exciting places to explore, this vibrant, fun-filled city is a top destination for snowbirds.

 

The City of Doves

 

In Deming, you’re tantalizingly close to crossing the border and making a getaway to another country. Take a journey along the Mimbres-Paquimé route, which showcases archaeological and cultural treasures as you drive from New Mexico to Old Mexico. At historic Columbus, a 45-minute drive from Deming, you’ll cross the border into the Mexican state of Chihuahua and discover Puerto Palomas de Villa, the City of the Doves. (Many visitors like to leave their car in the free parking lot on the U.S. side and simply walk across the border.) Better known as Palomas, this colorful Mexican town is filled with shops, including the famous Pink Store and Restaurant, where you can feast your eyes on arts and crafts from across Mexico and savor authentic Mexican food. Try the queso menonita, the famous local cheese the restaurant uses in its chile rellenos and other dishes. Made in a nearby Mennonite community, this cheese is the reason many visitors trek to Palomas.

For more than 25 years, the Lescombes Family Winefest has honored the greatness of the grape. This festive weekend in late September/early October is a barrelful of fun, with grape-stomping and cork-pulling contests, VIP winery tours, live music and dancing, kid’s activities, a silent auction, craft vendors and even fireworks. Of course, you’ll also get to sample award-winning wines and craft beer. It all takes place at the D.H. Lescombes Winery & Tasting room in Deming.

This white wonderland is yours to explore, sledding down sandy hills or heading out to hike and camp the backcountry, where the night sky’s brilliant stars will dazzle you. White Sands is filled with wildlife and plants along with evidence that hunter-gatherers were here some 10,000 years ago.

When you’re ready to tee off, the Rio Mimbres Country Club is ready for you, with a popular public golf course offering scenic views and challenging play.

An Adventure to Remember – Deming’s Paradise of Outdoor Parks

Deming’s Paradise of Outdoor Parks

 

If you’re like me, you’ve been dreaming of adventure in the great outdoors. Who isn’t, having been cooped up all winter? I imagine an open sky of blue, the piney scent of mountain forest, and a winding trail. That serene spot in nature where troubles float away like clouds.

Specifically, I’ve been dreaming of Deming. This paradise of outdoor parks is perfect for hiking, mountain biking, camping and sharing picnics with the ones you love. Once you’ve explored three spectacular state parks and cast a line in a fishing lake, you’ll agree — outdoor adventure doesn’t get much better than this.

Rock City

 

There’s nothing in the world like the otherworldly City of Rocks State Park. This geological wonder of towers, temples and other rock sculptures was formed in the wake of a volcanic eruption some 30 million years ago. Wander the wind-sculpted, rain-worn formations—some towering 40 feet high— and discover why this park is one of New Mexico’s most visited sites. Located 30 miles from Deming,  this is a prime spot for bouldering and rock climbing as well as hiking and mountain biking. Wildlife roams here, so you may see antelope, javelinas, deer and jackrabbits. Birdwatchers have some 35 species to spot , including golden eagles. Spend a night in one of the park campsites beneath a canopy of stars and you’ll never want to leave.

The moderate, 5.1-mile Table Mountain trail is City of Rocks’ most popular trail, drawing hikers and runners. The 669-foot elevation gain is worth it, when you see the gorgeous views at the top. At 3.6 miles, Hydra Trail is another favorite, an easy loop around the park with a 157-foot elevation gain. Happy trails to you!

 

A Rock-Hunter’s Delight

 

Get ready to rock it at Rockhound State Park, a prospector’s paradise with 1,100 acres of stunning scenery on the slopes of the Little Florida Mountains. Established in 1966, Rockhound was the first park in the country to let visitors take home the natural treasures they unearthed. And what treasures they are—opals, geodes, jasper, quartz crystal, onyx, agate and many other minerals and semi-precious gems. You don’t have to be a rockhound, though, to enjoy this park. You can hike and bike the rugged mountain slopes and enjoy a picnic amid panoramic views, Located 12 miles southeast of Deming, the park appeals to wildlife lovers, too, who might see antelope, deer, badgers, prairie dogs and plenty of birds.

Even the campground rocks it at Rockhound State Park. It’s not just the sweet scenery that locals love. It’s the spacious campsites and the kid’s playground, all designed for family fun.

 

 Preserving American History

History comes to life at Pancho Villa State Park, which commemorates the famous 1916 raid of  Columbus and Camp Furlong by Pancho Villa and his soldiers. This first, and last, armed invasion of the continental U.S. since the War of 1812 drew a fiery response from General “Black Jack” Pershing. Despite an 11-month 400-mile pursuit into Mexico with 10,000 U.S. soldiers, Pershing never captured the Mexican revolutionary. His U.S. military expedition was the first to employ airplanes and other mechanized transportation. When you’re ready to leave history behind, the park offers hiking, picnicking, camping, wildlife viewing and a native plant garden. Located at the border of Mexico, 30 minutes from Deming.

Don’t miss the Curtiss JN-3 “Jenny” 1916 aircraft and a 1916 Dodge touring car, like the one Pershing used as his field office, inside the park’s historic buildings and exhibition hall, The park also houses ruins of the historic military camp, Camp Furlong and a U.S. Customs House built in 1902, serves as the Visitor Center.

 

The Fish are Jumping

You might not expect to reel in a largemouth bass in downtown Deming, but drop your line in Trees Lake and you just may catch a few. That’s because this five-acre lake takes part in the New Mexico Game and Fish Department’s stocking program, which also includes bluegill, perch, catfish and fathead minnow. Trees Lake, part of Voiers’ “Pit” Park, also offers trails for leisurely strolls and perfect picnic spots.

 

Alojamiento

When it’s time to rest up between adventures, Deming offers hotels with charm and heated swimming pools and motels with affordable comfort and friendly service. Road-tripping in  your RV? Check out Deming’s 15 RV parks, where you can relax amid stunning mountain views with every amenity you might need.

 

Comida

Outdoor adventures can work up an appetite. Deming’s local restaurants and wineries will make sure you’re well-fed with hearty, delicious fare and award-winning New Mexico wines. Enjoy the laid-back, friendly ambience, where you can unwind and share tales about your adventures of the day.
