Let's Bring Light to Our Neighborhood

Luminarias have long been a tradition in Albuquerque — and our event has now become a favorite tradition for AGNA as well. This year we'd like to invite you again to join us in lighting up our neighborhood!

We will be offering a drive-thru pickup of luminaria supplies at La Puerta de Los Niños (3001 Trellis NW) from 1-3PM on Sunday, December 17th. There will be free cookies and music on the day of the event to get us all in a holiday spirit!

Each kit will include enough supplies for 12 luminarias:

  • 12 bags
  • 12 candles
  • Sand (please bring your own container to hold approx. 1/2 gallon of sand)

We are suggesting a $10 donation per kit. This covers the cost of the supplies, with any extra supporting your neighborhood! We will also have stickers available for sale at $3/each, which always make great stocking stuffers.

To order now, we've set up the option to pay your donation online. If you prefer, you can also make your donation at the site on the day of the event, while supplies last.

Happy Holidays to everyone!
