|Take a magical ride with the Albuquerque Ride buses to view the lovely luminaria displays throughout the city.|
Enjoy this annual New Mexican tradition without worrying about parking, driving through snow or annoying traffic delays.
You'll travel through a twinkling wonderland as the bus takes you to the Albuquerque Country Club area and other hot spots in the city decked out for the holidays. Then, you'll travel to Albuquerque's Old Town.
There, you'll see thousands of the luminarias, historically a Christian tradition, lighting the streets to guide Joseph and Mary to the stable in Bethlehem, as well as to guide people to Christmas Eve Midnight Mass.
You'll spend some time looking around at the late-night beauty of Old Town, then go to San Felipe de Neri Catholic Church (we recommend that you get there no later than 10:30 PM) where you'll attend Midnight Mass (which really starts at 11:00 PM).
At midnight, the beautiful bells at the church ring in Christmas Day.
Return to hotel via bus after Mass is over.
