Binational Cavalcade in Columbus

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Horse riders from Mexico and the U.S. came together at the border and rode into Columbus on Saturday.

The annual binational cavalcade event commemorates Pancho Villa’s cross-border raid on the town in 1916, though the modern day version is described as a gathering of goodwill and friendship – not to mention the longest horse parade in Luna County.

Riders from Mexico and the U.S. arrive in the town of Columbus as part of the cavalcade.
