aspenfest logo AspenFestOctober 3-4, 2015 This year’s theme is “Fall” in Love with Ruidoso.
Celebrate Autumn in Ruidoso with a weekend of great golf, cool cars, hot chili, great crafts and a festive parade!

2014 parade marshal AspenFestAspenFest, Ruidoso’s annual fall celebration, the first weekend in October, allows residents and visitors alike to participate in the celebration of our caring community, the cool crispness of the coming fall and the beauty that is Ruidoso. AspenFest weekend is kicked off every year with a parade Saturday at 10 a.m. through Midtown Ruidoso and features a Golf Tournament on Sunday. “Everybody loves a parade and mixing with chile, cars and crafts is a homerun. The fall is a time for tradition and friends and our mountain is the perfect spot.”

The Ruidoso Valley Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce this year’s Aspenfest Grand Marshals. The Command Team from the 32d Army Air & Missile Defense Command will serve as Grand Marshals for the 2014 “Salute to Freedom – Aspenfest Style” parade.

Brigadier General Fryc and Command Sergeant Major Jefferies each have over 30 years of military service and leadership in the Air Defense Artillery. Their combined service to the nation has spanned multiple continents, deployments, contingencies, and wars in defense of our country and way of life.

The 32d Army & Air Missile Defense Command (32d AAMDC) Headquartered at Fort Bliss, Texas is a theater level Army air and missile defense multi-component organization of highly disciplined and trained Warriors who plan, coordinate, integrate, synchronize, and execute joint or Combined Theater Air and Missile Defense operations in Central Command.
