The New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum in Las Cruces offers free admission on this day each year to thank the community for its support and to showcase its outstanding exhibits and programs. Demonstrations -- blacksmithing, weaving, wool spinning, quilting, sewing -- are part of the day, and the Parade of Breeds cattle program is held. The highlight of year's Community Appreciation Day is the 100th birthday of the Museum's chuck wagon. The restored wagon will be on display and food samples will be available while supplies last.
