    A wealth of delightful and dazzling cultural events are cropping up for Burqueños this month, including the Dragon Lights Festival, formerly known as the Chinese Lantern Festival. And guess what! This year has all new, handcrafted lantern sculptures to marvel at. The artists from Zigong, China, have brought out their vast creativity to bring their exquisite culture to the renamed fest. Kicking off on Friday, Oct. 5 and running Tuesdays through Sundays until Dec. 2 at Expo New Mexico, see the wonders of the orient including demos in inner-bottle painting, traditional Chinese calligraphy and crystal engraving. If that's not enough, check out revolving performances in face changing, contortion and Chinese Yo-Yo as well as food choices for all in American munchies and Asian delicacies from Asian Home Cooking. The festival runs each night from 6 to 10pm and tickets range in cost from $0 to $18 with a separate charge for parking. This event is open to all ages. (Mayo Lua de Frenchie)

    Welcome to your nightmare! If you're not a horror fan, the more than 1.25 mile horror house may not be the ideal evening stroll. But for others, the Guinness World Record holders of the world's longest indoor horror house is a terrifying and entertaining way to spend an evening. Dragon's House of Horrors comes back to Expo New Mexico for another chilling year. All ages are welcome to experience the thrills for $25, and add a suspenseful escape room adventure for just $5 more. Receive a text when your turn comes up so there's no waiting in line. With food vendors, booths to purchase wares and live entertainment, waiting for the text won't feel like waiting at all. The house opened its doors on Oct. 4 and runs Tuesday through Saturday until Oct. 26. After that it is open 7 days a week from Oct. 28 to Nov. 4 from 7pm to midnight. Bring extra cash for Expo parking fees. (Mayo Lua de Frenchie)
