Let's usher in the holiday season by taking part in the southwestern tradition of lighting the farolitos (meaning "little lanterns"). The ceremony begins with seasonal carols led by members of the Southwest Musicians, complimentary hot spiced apple cider, coffee and biscochito cookies. At the end of the ceremony, all quests are invited to write a passed loved one's name on a slip of paper and tuck it into a pinecone. One by one, the pinecones are carried and placed into the courtyard bonfire. The resulting sparkles of light and bright fire glide upwards, carrying messages into the sky and to the loved one.
The event is free and starts at 4:00pm.
We can grab some dinner after the event.
