Franklin Mountains Poppies Fest
March 2021
Franklin Mountains State Park

If you love spring time in the Franklin Mountains and enjoy gathering with others who appreciate the wonders of the natural world, then the Annual Poppies Fest in Northeast El Paso is for you! This year’s free community event celebrating El Paso’s annual bloom of Mexican poppies promises to be one of the best in years said event coordinator Debbie Cuilty. The Farmer’s Almanac predicted above normal rainfall this past winter which has been the case in El Paso and is great news for desert flowers.
