Santa Feans flocked to the historic district for the annual Pancakes on the Plaza 4th of July celebration this year and community members of all ages were able to share their creative spirit thanks to a unique hands-on RadHat-making art station hosted by the local educational nonprofit, Community Learning Network (CLN) and New Mexico TechWorks. CLN brought the original RadHatter from California to facilitate the process and more than 500 community members were able to make RadHats that day. Kairav Sharma, one of our New Mexico Youth Ambassadors in training, got super innovative, engineering spectacles dangling from his hat. Even Mayor Alan Webber enjoyed the family fun, as did Liz Camacho from the City of Santa Fe Office of Economic Development, and community members of all ages!
