¡ILUMINARTE! is a winter holiday celebration inspired by luminarias and farolitos—a New Mexico tradition. In 2019, this Sunday evening event included an illuminated bike parade along the Paseo del Bosque Trail led by Story Riders–a bilingual, after-school, bike-riding program for elementary school students—along with performances by Circo Latino and AirDance New Mexico at the NHCC and “River of Lights” at the Botanical Gardens. The evening concluded with readings by Albuquerque Poet Laureate Michelle Otero with students from three elementary schools at Tingley Beach, along the Rio Grande. Stay tuned for 2020 events, which may be virtual. ¡ILUMINARTE! is a collaboration between the NHCC, the City of Albuquerque, Story Riders, AirDance New Mexico, and the Albuquerque Poet Laureate Program.
