Old Man Gloom To Burn

Old Man Gloom To Burn

If your in Santa Fe Friday night before Labor Day weekend, one possible sight to see is definitely the burning of the Zozobra, a New Mexican tradition since 1924. To kick off the Santa Fe Fiestas, the Kiwanis club puts on the annual celebration to lure "the gloomy one" out of hiding and lift the spell he plans to cast over the city to devour all hope and happiness. Fueled by mans nefarious misdeeds, he is reborn yearly like a ghostly demon that awaits his chance to strike. 

Constructed carefully by the celebrations committee of wood, sticks, and shredded paper that consists from loan payoffs to divorce papers. Ironically the fuel that the monster feeds on, also leads to his undoing by the legendary Fire Spirit, to restore hope and happiness to the city of Santa Fe once more. Truly a sight to see, and a New Mexican tradition worth checking out!

Zozobra takes place Friday September 1st, 9:30pm, the scheduled ceremony start time. You can buy tickets online 


or at the gate up until 9:00pm.

Don't forget a light jacket, comfortable shoes, and your best shouting voices; "BURN HIM!"
