The New Mexico History Museum's Lowrider Day showcases the best of lowrider culture, featuring over 130 genuine lowriders in a parade through Santa Fe's historic plaza. The event highlights the passion and pride of ownership of lowriders, with owners reveling in the opportunity to tell the story behind their cars.
The Hopping Demo is particularly popular, showcasing the physics-defying lowrider magic that transforms two tons of American-made steel into bumping, jumping machines. Lowrider culture is linked to important American experiences such as World War II and the Chicano Movement of the 1960s. Key takeaways from Lowrider Day include owning your vehicle, consistent maintenance, teaming up with others, showing your pride, and passing on your knowledge to future generations.
