MainStreet lights the way in Taos

Posted

Festivities for the holiday season are well underway and the nonprofit Taos MainStreet is adding its touch to businesses this year with electric faralitos (known in some parts as luminarias). 

The newly formed MainStreet program has been working with businesses in the downtown area to place the farolitos along their rooftops. Over 30 shops have agreed to allow MainStreet to set up the lights on their buildings while even more have agreed to participate in the festivities on their own. The lights have been installed over the past three days and will be lit for the holiday season through February. 

“The emphasis is the support the merchants and bring people into the downtown area,” said MainStreet representative Elizabeth Crittenden Palacios. 

MainStreet is a revitalization program for downtown areas of cities and villages around New Mexico. Towns apply for the designation, which makes them eligible for public money to complete projects.
