Poppies In Bloom, El Pasoans Celebrate
EL PASO - It's that time of the year again. If you drive by the Franklin Mountains in Northeast El Paso you can see the poppies are in bloom.
Of course, that means people were out Saturday at Castner Range celebrating the annual Poppies Festival.
"What we really want to do is help the preservation of Castner Range," Naima Montacer said. "As you can see the poppies are beautiful. We want to keep those around."
If you want to keep the poppies around for future generations to enjoy, the city say all you have to do is join the Franklin Mountain Wilderness Coalition.
