Events from 5-7 pm will include a talk about the history, facts and urban legends of the luminaria/farolito, an illuminated bike parade, create your own “iluminarte” (paper bag) workshop, a student art and writing show, and more.
All events are free and open to the public and take place on the beautifully illuminated campus of the NHCC.
