Pajarito Mountain may not have much snow on it at this time of year, but there will be plenty going on there Saturday.
The mountain will celebrate the start of its summer season with SummerFest. The day-long event will include plenty for everyone in the community to see and do.
Pajarito lift service will start at 9 a.m. for those wanting to hike or ride down the mountain’s trails. A downhill race is also scheduled for Saturday.
Along with the bike-and-hike, the New Mexico Brewers Festival will begin at noon. There are 15 microbrewers that will be represented at the festival, which will continue through 5 p.m.
Atomic City Transit will provide shuttle transportation to and from the event starting at 9 a.m.
Free shuttles are scheduled to run every half-hour from Sullivan Field to the mountain.
This is the first hike-and-bike event scheduled for the summer. Others on the Pajarito calendar include July 14, July 28 and Aug. 25.
