One of New Mexico’s most historic traditions, Zozobra, aka Old Man Gloom, was created in 1924 by legendary artist Will Shuster and is now set ablaze annually by the Santa Fe Kiwanis Club. Zozobra, AKA Old Man Gloom, is the Original Burning Man and predates the Black Rock newcomer by 60 years. 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.
SEE YOU ON FRIDAY AUGUST, 30, 2019!
