From San Juan College
Celebrate the holiday season with a peaceful glow when San Juan College presents its gift to the community, Saturday, December 5th.
For the 42nd year, a glimmering array of bags will shine from rooftops, along sidewalks, and in select campus parking lots throughout the evening. While the Luminaria tradition continues, this year’s event has been modified to keep visitors safe, with a drive-through event only Campus will be closed to walkers; however, visitors can drive through campus beginning at 6 p.m. to enjoy the Luminara display.
Drivers will enter the College from Butler Avenue traveling north on Sunrise Parkway. They will then follow the marked route through the campus and exit at College Boulevard, where traffic will be required to turn south to 30th Street. Please note that the Pinon Hills Boulevard entrance to the College will be closed during the Luminaria display. As a courtesy, all drivers are asked to turn their lights off as they drive through the display. Drivers will also be asked to stay in their cars.
The sounds of the season will be broadcast on San Juan College’s listener supported radio station, KSJE 90.9-FM, and streamed at KSJE.com.
The Office of Student Engagement and Campus Life coordinates this event with help from the San Juan College Physical Plant, San Juan College Department of Public Safety, students, staff and community volunteers who set up and light the candles. San Juan College invites community members, families and small household groups to contribute to this annual tradition by assisting with the set-up of bags on; Friday, December 4th at 1 p.m. and Saturday, December 5th at 9 a.m; or lighting the candles at 3 p.m. on Saturday, December 5th. After the evening display, small groups are invited to help with clean-up at 10 a.m. on Sunday, December 6th. Campus will open to vehicles to pick-up and re-use the luminarias at their organizations or homes.
