This is a BIG week in Santa Fe. Not only is it the 95th burning of Zozobra, but it is also the kick off of Fiestas de Santa Fe, an over 300 year old Santa Fe Tradition bringing together people of all backgrounds to celebrate Northern New Mexican history, culture, music, food and more. From historic ceremonies and a Mariachi Extravaganza and a Pet Parade and the burning of Old Man Gloom, the week of Fiestas de Santa Fe has something for everyone.
