People went out to Los Ranchos de Albuquerque on Sunday to enjoy the last day of the Lavender Festival.

There was wine tasting, beer brewing and live music.

Events happened in several locations including the Agri-Nature center, Los Poblanos and at several 4th street stores,

Organizers say the festival is about sustainable agriculture and the importance of locally grown and made products, like lavender.

Festival attendees talked to KOB Eyewitness News 4 about their favorite parts of the festival.

“I think smelling all the candles, all the different kinds of lavender candles,” says Amber Sanger who attended the festival.

Organizers say the festival is also a good showcase of the culture of the North Valley.
