Burn, Baby, Burn
It’s not a good time to gather together in large groups. It is, however, an excellent time to incinerate our woes and worries. This combination makes this year’s 96th Annual Burning of Zozobra in Santa Fe something of an essential ritual. The 2020 event, like so many, has gone virtual, with the burning of Old Man Gloom being telecast live on KOAT-7 on Sept. 4 starting at 7pm. But AMP Concerts is helping build the community spirit with a COVID-safe Zozobra Watch Party at HIPICO, Santa Fe’s premiere equestrian facility. Viewers are invited to see all the action go down on two large HD video screens, drive-in-style. Cuarenta y Cinco and Severo y Grupo Fuego perform live on stage before the burning. Tickets are $49, $66, $88 and $110 per carload (up to six people per car). Early bird arrival and setup starts at 4:30pm. All cars must be in by 6:50pm. You must purchase tickets in advance at ampconcerts.org/event/363759/zozobra-watch-party. (Devin D. O’Leary)
