You’ll never walk alone

Pasatiempo - - Mixed Media -

At dusk on Fri­day, Dec. 24, the turns and curves of Canyon Road will be lit by dis­plays of paper-bag lu­mi­nar­ias and roar­ing bon­fires. Thou­sands of on­look­ers are ex­pected to show up at the an­nual Christ­mas Eve farolito walk spon­sored by the City of Santa Fe and the His­toric Neigh­bor­hood As­so­ci­a­tion. For those hop­ing to avoid the crowds, Ace­quia Madre and other side streets of the east­side neigh­bor­hood will also fea­ture homes dec­o­rated in the sig­na­ture North­ern New Mex­ico hol­i­day style of lights and lu­mi­nar­ias. The lighted hol­i­day walk has been a city tra­di­tion since the late 1970s. As usual, rov­ing packs of car­ol­ers will sing hol­i­day songs and gen­er­ous home­own­ers and gallery op­er­a­tors will pass around warm biz­co­chi­tos and hot cider.

This is a pedes­trian event closed to cars. Bar­ri­cades go up at 5:30 p.m., block­ing ve­hi­cles from the streets. The walk is sched­uled to run from 6 to 9 p.m. Free shut­tles leave from Santa Fe Place mall and the South Capi­tol sta­tion be­gin­ning at 5:30 p.m. Pas­sen­gers will be de­liv­ered to the PERA build­ing park­ing lot. The last bus de­parts from PERA build­ing at 9:30 p.m. For in­for­ma­tion call Santa Fe Trails at 955-2001.
