Watch him burn

Pasatiempo - - NEWS -

Zo­zo­bra, Santa Fe’s fa­mous groan­ing, in­flam­ma­tory pup­pet, has been chang­ing his wardrobe of late. Be­gin­ning in 2014, the spon­sor­ing Ki­wa­nis Club of Santa Fe dressed him in the spirit of the 1920s, the decade of his in­ven­tion by artist Will Shus­ter. This year, we’re up to the 1950s in the Decades Project that leads up to the 2024 cen­ten­nial burn­ing of Zo­zo­bra (aka Old Man Gloom, aka Big Daddy-O). Re­lated events may bring back mem­o­ries of the Mickey Mouse Club, bomb shel­ters, Jackie Robin­son, the Ford Thun­der­bird, and other icons of the time. Pasatiempo joins in the spirit of the oc­ca­sion with a photo es­say fea­tur­ing Fi­esta de Santa Fe im­ages from the 1950s, plus sto­ries about Shus­ter and a Fi­esta Sym­po­sium. On the cover is a shot of Fi­esta crowds on the Plaza, 1959, photo Bob LaRouche, Neg. No. 010908, courtesy Palace of the Gov­er­nors Photo Archives (NMHM/DCA).
