Santa Fe - Fort Marcy Park

One of New Mexico’s most historic traditions, the Burning of Zozobra, aka Old Man Gloom, showcases the Original Burning Man, predating the Black Rock newcomer by 60 years. Will Shuster’s creation originated as a homely 6-foot effigy made to entertain friends and family, and over the decades has morphed into a towering 50-footer, one of the world’s tallest fully functioning marionettes. His bones of wood and wire shrouded in endless yards of muslin, Zozobra is stuffed with an absolute mountain of shredded paper. Tucked inside his enormous body are slips of paper inscribed with a year’s worth of gloomy thoughts and disappointments, destined to go up in smoke when he is set alight in a fiery extravaganza culminating in the city’s finest fireworks display. And general admission for this only-in-Santa-Fe experience is a mere $10 per person, kids 10 & under free!  Check out their website HERE.  This video should give you a good idea of what Zozobra is: Click Here.
