Locals flock to 30th annual community event

Posted

The parking lots were full, the traffic around the Taos Historic District was at times bumper-to-bumper, but there was an infectious spirit in the air that drew Taoseños to the 30th annual holiday-themed event called Bonfires on Bent Street.

The event, which featured music, fire dancing and drumming along with free chile and soup for the crowds, is conducted each year by area merchants “to thank everyone for their year-round friendship and support, to make new friends and to celebrate the light within and without,” according to organizer Polly Raye in a Thursday (Dec. 6) Tempo story.

Although a bit chilly, the bonfires kept families warm and toasty as they perused the various shops in the John Dunn House Shops and along historic Bent Street. It was a block party that certainly represented the blend of community and tradition for which Taos is well known.
