Creativity was on tap Saturday, February 8, in Finley Gym.  What started out in 1996 simply as an opportunity for children and adults to create arts and crafts together, the annual Community Arts Party has grown into a much-appreciated annual event.  The event has become an annual tradition in Socorro, and although it’s not a legal holiday, it’s just as established on our calendar as the 4th of July or Labor Day.  Major sponsors of the annual event are New Mexico Tech Performing Arts Series, New Mexico Tech’s Facilities and Community Education, the City of Socorro, Positive Outcomes, Inc., and Walmart.
