Winter Solstice Festival


Every year the Santa Fe Children's Museum has a Winter Solstice Festival that include storytelling, a drumming circle, snacks the best part a labyrinth made out of luminarias. It's a great community event that brings people out to celebrate the solstice.

Luminarias are magical. We are the only ones in our neighborhood who have luminarias lighted during this season.
