ALBUQUERQUE, N.M (KRQE) – New Mexicans already know Madrid is a cool little town. Now the historic tourist attraction is about to get some national attention for a holiday tradition.
People in Madrid are excited they are making national news by showing off their annual holiday parade on CBS Sunday Morning. From bagpipes to vintage cars, even a bull with a dog on its back- all are sights to see at Madrid’s yearly Christmas parade.
The historic coal mining town is nestled along the Turquoise Trail on Highway 14 south of Santa Fe.
People in the town said this weekend’s segment on the CBS Sunday Morning news will not only focus on the parade, full of fun characters and dressed up pets, but also on how Madrid recovered from being a ghost town.
The CBS crew came out to film this year’s parade which was held the first weekend of December. If you missed this year’s parade, “Madrid Christmas” activities continue every weekend of December.
