Get ready for an Evening of Lights! Come to Aztec Ruins National Monument on Thursday, December 7 from 6 to 8 PM to experience a dazzling sight: hundreds of luminarias illuminating the Aztec West great house and the Old Spanish Trail. This event is one night only, so don’t miss it! The event is free and open to the public and photography is welcome.

Evening of Lights is the first event to kick off the Aztec Sparkles Christmas Festival. This year, even more lights will be on display at Aztec Ruins. There will also be cultural demonstrations and a children’s activity table. Complimentary cookies and cocoa will be provided by the Friends of Aztec Ruins.

The park store, run by Western National Parks Association, will be having a store-wide 15% off sale as well. Elisa Bird, park store manager, said, “this year’s new items include etched glassware and new postcards, key chains, lapel pins, and tote bags.”

Please dress warmly and bring a flashlight.
