Music, dancers, vendors, and more provided the entertainment for SocorroFest 2022, with competitions in three-on-three basketball and cornhole tournaments providing fun for the entire family.

For Joseph Black Wolf, it was a chance for people to see him at work on custom-made leathercrafting belts, and he had a full display of accessories, including some belt buckles of his creation.

Just a few booths away, fellow vendor Nevaeh Rivera was busy representing Arieyl specialty new tropics and introducing visitors to how to find natural relief for their aches and pains and even their pets.

Further back and in the shade, the Socorro Fire Department members were running the cornhole tournament to raise money for a local child’s medical bills. Across the street, the plastic-ringing echo of basketballs hitting the pavement as part of a three-on-three tournament.

Watching dad play cornhole, Jaeleigh Jaramillo was enjoying a snack while her brother Jaxton was doing his best to get involved in the tournament with dad.

Model T cars were seen all around the town, and the strains of music from the gazebo provided the beat for a troupe of belly dancers.

There was ice cream, fruit, vegetables, snacks galore, and a sip or two of the good stuff in establishments nearby with live music to enjoy.

If you missed Socorro Fest 2022, you missed a lot, but the good news is you are invited back next year when we do it all again.
