2020 Fox Park Christmas Luminarias

Fair West Neighbors, please help these candles realize the dream denied to them last year. The dream to be Fox Park Christmas Luminarias. These 147 candles were nestled their sandy beds, snug in their paper bag home ready to be set to be set ablaze to help Fair West Neighbors bring in Christmas last year, but nature damped their dreams. The rains destroyed the bags, but we saved these candles from destruction. We are asking for your help to keep the luminarias in the park tradition alive this year.Make as many luminarias as your family would like. Come to 616 Valencia Drive NE and rescue candles from the plastic delivery box on the south end of the porch. Put your luminarias up around Fox Memorial Park Christmas Eve. We will have a crew ready to light them at night fall.

If you would like to be part of the lighting crew, send an email, Katherine Turner, FWNA President at ABQFairWestPresident@gmail.com.

When you pick up your candles be sure to also get the 2021 Headwaters Calendar, Celebrating the San Juan-Chama Project. These beautiful calendars are provided by the Water Authority to neighborhood associations every year to give out as a gift to the community.
