It’s Christmas Eve, which means it’s once again time for the Canyon Road Farolito Walk. The road will be closed from 6-9 pm tonight so that people can crowd the road with holiday spirit.
Also this year the City of Santa Fe Tourism Department has created a caroling book so that you can join in on the singing along The Road. Download it here, then for ease of use print double sided.
