2018 Elephant Butte Luminaria Beachwalk
Annually: 2nd Saturday in December
Cost: park entrance fee

The Luminaria Beachwalk, organized and hosted by Friends of Elephant Butte Lake and Elephant Butte Lake State Park, starts at dusk. Thousands of luminarias* line paths on the beach that lead to bonfires sponsored by local groups. Grab a complimentary holiday treat and join in the caroling, or visit with Santa Claus. Donations for the Make-A-Wish Foundation will be accepted at the Rio Mesa Realty campsite.

[What are luminarias? “A Christmas lantern consisting of a votive candle set in a small paper bag weighted with sand and typically placed with others along a driveway, sidewalk or rooftop as a holiday decoration.”]
