Nearly 30,000 motorcycle riders rallied at Red River over the Memorial Day weekend.

The annual springtime event jump starts the tourist season in the Northern New Mexico and Southern Colorado region.

Red River is one of the most popular tourist destinations due to its scenic location and mild climate.

Centrally located in the north central mountains of New Mexico, Red River is the closest resort area to Texas and Oklahoma, as well as a short drive from Southern Colorado.

At 8,750 feet above sea level, Red River is in the Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range and surrounded by 1.5 million acres of the Carson National Forest.

Live music was heard all over town during the event.

Hundreds of vendors sold everything from leather to lace to food.

On Monday morning, bikers traveled en masse to visit the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial in Angel Fire before heading to their homes throughout the country.
