Civic Plaza hold 3rd Annual Local Band Showcase

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE)– Local bands showed their skill at Civic Plaza Saturday.

It was the 3rd Annual Local Band Showcase.

The free event featured 20 bands, face-painting, food trucks and beer and wine.

In years past, the event has been held during the work week at the KiMo Theater, but the city wanted a more festival style event to attract more people.
