Let it Burn: The 90th Burning of Zozobra

How do you get rid of the bad thoughts and vibes that have held you captive for the past months? You head to the burning of Will Shuster's Zozobra, of course. Originally thought of in 1926 as part of the Fiestas de Santa Fe, this “part-ghost, part-monster” has grown to be over 50 feet tall and signifies a way to cleanse the emotional constraints that inhabit residents of the Land of Enchantment. Seeing this structure alight in flame and stuffed with papers (each containing notes of the hardships of the past year) is a festive nod toward the future.

One of the City Different's most sacred and celebratory traditions, the event, put on the Kiwanis Club of Santa Fe, includes food and drink from multiple vendors, ceremonial dancing that tells the story of Old Man Gloom and culminates in a glorious effigy at dusk. Happening tomorrow at Fort Marcy Park (320 Artist Rd.), the gates open at 2pm, with entertainment kicking off at 2:30pm. It's a nice way to settle with a blanket and some good people before the real action happens at 7pm. Price is $10, but children 10 and under get in for free. Fort Marcy Park, Santa Fe • Fri Aug 29 • 2:30-10:30pm • $10, FREE for children 10 and under • ALL-AGES! • View on Alibi calendar

To Doom from Gloom

I'm crazy about you, R. Although I've known you for over 20 years, these last 17 months with you have been amazing. You are the only man I want to kiss, hold hands and be with. You always make me smile and laugh no matter what mood I'm in. Every time you say we are soulmates, my heart lights up. We have a special connection that is so unique. You are gorgeous, sexy, charming and funny. I'd marry you tomorrow. I thank God everyday for bringing us together. Always Only You. Love T View post
