Farolitos are a mainstay of the holidays in Santa Fe. Simple flickering candles in weighted paper bags creates a sense of quite reverence and peace. They also draw large crowds to Canyon Road every Christmas Eve for the Annual Canyon Road Farolito Walk. The little lanterns line walls and paths, while luminaria fires provide warm places of warm respite along the road. Joviality and song fill the street as the holiday spirit fills the air.
2015 once again sees Canyon Road hosting this favorite Santa Fe event, which will start at dusk on December 24th. Some galleries along the road will be open for extended hours or hosting special exhibitions.
Warm Up For Charity
Scarlett’s Antique Shop & Gallery, 225 Canyon Road, will host the 6th Annual Baked Goods and Hot Cocoa Sale on Christmas Eve during the Canyon Road Farolito Walk to benefit The Heart & Soul Animal Sanctuary in Glorieta.
Baked goods and hot cocoa are being provided by volunteers, and include homemade fudge, biscochitos, cakes, assorted cookies, and many other scrumptious goodies. All (100 percent) of the sales benefit The Heart and Soul Animal Sanctuary.
Santa Fe artist, Julian Romero, has created a charming Pueblo-style Gingerbread House – including handmade miniature adobe bricks and tiny farolitos! – which will be auctioned during the event. You are invited to preview this wonderful creation as well as enter your bid at Scarlett’s.
Also available are dog biscuits for big and little dogs, donated by San Marcos Feed Store
