Light of the world
The annual pedestrian-only Christmas Eve Canyon Road Farolito Walk showcases the New Mexico holiday tradition of illuminating streets and buildings with farolitos — in one of Santa Fe’s prettiest neighborhoods. There is spontaneous music and caroling, refreshments for sale at many local businesses, and general good cheer to be had. You can start early and watch the sun set around the firelight, or arrive after dusk to join the swelling crowds, and don’t forget to head over to Acequia Madre and surrounding streets.
