Christmas Eve, beginning at dusk.
A hallowed holiday tradition in Santa Fe, the Canyon Road Farolito Walk on Christmas Eve brings out thousands of holiday revelers who stroll the famous street, admiring the displays of farolito lights, singing carols around luminaries, or bonfires, and generally celebrating the holiday spirit.
Galleries line their gardens, courtyards and adobe walls with these lovely little lights made out of paper bags with and tea candles that burn brightly into the night. Some serve hot chocolate to the strollers, while others remain open, offering a place to warm up. Be sure to dress warmly, and bring the whole family to this festive holiday event.
