Let's Bring Light to our Neighborhood

Luminarias are an annual tradition in Albuquerque — this year we'd like to invite you to join your neighbors 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 2-4PM on Sunday, December 20th.

We will provide enough supplies for 10 luminarias per household, which will include:

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

We ask that everyone wear a mask and are suggesting a $5 donation for the luminaria supplies. To minimize contact, 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. 

Happy Holidays to everyone!

2020 Annual Meeting Postponed

With an abundance of caution and in concern for our fellow neighbors, the Alvarado Gardens Neighborhood Association Board of Directors made the decision to postpone the annual meeting of the membership that was to take place on March 28th. We hope these measures taking place across our communities will keep everyone safe and we're looking forward to rescheduling soon.

Thanks for being such great neighbors!
