Happy holidays everyone!! Every year at Christmas time the Rio Grande Botanical Gardens has a light presentation called RIVER OF LIGHTS. It's sort of an electrical light sculpture show, many with a Christmas theme. There are carolers and hot chocolate vendors and everyone is in a festive mood. I hope all of you are doing well this holiday season. Enjoy
First off we went to the National Hispanic Cultural Center. It was all decked out with luminarias aka farolitos. Luminarias are paper bags filled with sand and lit with a candle from the inside. Traditionally they are placed outside a home or church to light the way for the Christ child. Today however they are electrical and many business' decorate their buildings with them. It's quite beautiful yet simple. The city looks great this time of year.
Parking is free at the botanical gardens and the admission is only six dollars.
