The City of El Paso Museums and Cultural Affairs Department and the El Paso Public Library invite the public to take advantage of several free family-friendly activities in Downtown El Paso on Saturday, August 20.

The El Paso Museum of Art, located at 1 Arts Festival Plaza, invites families to learn about Mexican folk-art traditions through the Museum’s retablos collection.

Children ages 6 to 14 can head to the Creation Lab to create their entry for the 20th Anniversary Children’s Drawing Contest, Este es mi México (Let’s Draw about Mexican Music and Traditions). Refreshments will also be provided.
