Snow blanketing adobe walls, the glow of farolitos lining rooftops, and the scent of pinon wood burning in kiva fireplaces. Santa Fe in the winter is truly magical and the perfect setting for Ringing in the New Year into 2017.

The festivities begin at 8:45 p.m on December 31, 2016. with the Plaza warmed by cozy piñon bonfires scenting the night air with an unmistakably comforting New Mexican fragrance.
