Christmas at Kuaua was a huge success this year!

Thank you to all of the Visitors, Friends of Coronado, and Staff for all helping out to create such a special evening. During the event we had almost 800 visitors join the festivities at our site. There was craft activities, music, story telling, native dancers around a bonfire, an appearance of Santa Clause, as well as refreshments. Visitors also enjoyed a farolito tour (sidewalks lined with paper bags illuminated with candles) through the ruins along the main loop trail. This year we placed over 1,000 farolitos around the site along trails, on the ruins, and on buildings. Visitors were pleased to see a Zia sun symbol created out of almost 300 farolitos, as well as a stunning full moon which presided over the festivities.
