Noche de Luminarias stroll on NMSU campus

Come join members of the Jornada Hiking Group for a stroll across NMSU's campus to see the 30th annual Noche de Luminarias. The NMSU campus will be lit with 6,000 luminarias (or farolitos).  

The starting time of this meet-up will be 7pm, to allow those people participating in Hike and Happy Hour time to enjoy the 'Happy Hour.' 

For more informations see facebook page for event:  https://www.facebook.com/events/851222304930340/

This will be a leisurely stroll across campus. I imagine it will take at least an 1-1.5 hours to see all the lights, and enjoy the activities. 

Dress warmly in layers, as I think there will be activities inside NMSU buildings as well as outside, and bring a flashlight (but use only if absolutely necessary). 


Meeting Place:  Parking lot west of NMSU Art Galley. This lot is easy access with the main entrance being the end of Solano Dr.

Cost: Free, but they might have things for sale. 

Pet Friendly: Not sure, but assuming if on leash will be welcome (but not welcome inside of the buildings).

    I'm at the lot listed above and there is currently many empty spots. Look for silver rav 4.

    I'm undecided on going. For those who are going, it would be good to know that the parking situation is likely to be horrendous. I went last year and ended up parking at the Pan-Am Center, and even that lot was crowded.

      Cyndy and I hiked to one of the slot canyons in the Robledos, I need to rest my feet, so won't be going. Perhaps next year?

    Any questions call or text (preferred):[masked] 1117. If the parking lot I have listed is full, there are a couple of other lots on further west on University and a big lot on the corner of Espina and University (access off Knox). We will do our best to get everyone a parking spot, and together for the walk.
