(Only three more years, and he'll be driving!!!! Where does the time go?) As we enter our 14th year, we're grateful to all of our Guides, friends and supporters. We look forward to an eternity with you!!!

The weather for tomorrow's Old Town Holiday Stroll will be dry - and NO WIND!! While temperatures will be cold, it will be a perfect night to come out and enjoy the Season. Bundle up the family, head down, and be a part of the history & tradition!

All of the shops are toasty warm - many with fire places burning --- ahhh the wonderful smell of pinon! Hot chocolate, posole, the lighting of Albuquerque's Christmas Tree, over 30 live performances throughout Old Town, caroling and lots of great shopping deals to be enjoyed when you purchase a Stroll pin benefiting the Arthritics Foundation.

Park for free at 18th St. & Bellamah Ave. and take the shuttle to the museums and Old Town! Avoid traffic and take ABQRide. The 66 Central bus will be running all evening long. Park at K-Mart at Central and Atrisco and hop on the bus. Standard bus fare applies.

1. FIND THAT ONE-OF-A-KIND UNIQUE ITEM – Old Town has special gifts for everyone on your list that you just won’t find in a mall or chain store. Shopping in Old Town is a truly delightful experience. Unique items from around the world, as well as those that are distinctly Southwestern, can be found in more than 150 shops, boutiques, galleries and artist studios.

2. YOU ARE HELPING TO CREATE JOBS & JOB SECURITY – According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, small businesses represent 99.7% of all employer firms in the U.S. economy. Small businesses employ 50% of all private sector employees and created 65% of the net new jobs over the past 17 years. Several hundred people are employed within the historic Old Town area.

3. YOU WILL ENJOY THE “OLD TOWN” AMBIANCE – Shopping in Old Town is always a beautiful experience, but it is especially enchanting when decked out for the Holiday Season! Unique historic architecture, the huge Christmas Tree in Plaza Don Luis, the romantic Gazebo on the Plaza and the charming patios and courtyards will make your shopping trip an exciting adventure. LUMINARIAS (Farolitos) - Thousands of visitors and residents come to Old Town on during the Holiday Stroll (Friday, December 6, 2012) and on Christmas Eve (Tuesday, December 24, 2012) to see the spectacular display of luminarias. Candles are set in a bed of sand inside the bottom of a paper bag. When lit, they create a golden glow. Thousands of luminarias line the Church, Plaza, streets and walkways of Old Town. 

4. FIND EXPERTS THAT YOU CAN TALK TO – Old Town’s Specialty Shops know their stuff! Merchants have dedicated their lives to learning their trades. Would you prefer to ask the teenage department store cashier about the special gift you’re buying or to ask the actual artisan who obtained the materials and lovingly hand crafted the item?

5. YOU WILL KEEP YOUR MONEY IN ALBUQUERQUE – Money spent in Old Town is more likely to stay within Albuquerque. Old Town’s Merchants typically buy goods and supplies from local vendors, bank with local banks, use services from local firms, buy advertising space in local publications and support other Albuquerque businesses in all that they do.

6. YOU DESERVE A BETTER MEAL THAN CAN BE FOUND IN A FOOD COURT - Enjoy the spice & flair of our traditional cuisine at one of the dozen restaurants, cafes & coffee shops featuring everything from the All-American hamburger to fine continental cuisine. Need a double espresso or a chocolate pick me up so that you can shop till you drop? Take your pick from Old Town’s finest purveyors.

7. YOU CAN MAKE A DATE OUT OF IT! Take a break & have some fun while you’re doing your shopping. Visit with Santa, take a guided Christmas Tour, explore a local Museum, look at the holiday lights & decorations or enjoy a variety of free live entertainment that is sure to put a spring in your step and in the Holiday Spirit! 

8. YOUR FRIENDS & FAMILY CAN VISIT WITHOUT HAVING TO MAKE THE BEDS OR DO THE DISHES! Several Hotel, Motels and Bed & Breakfasts are within walking distance to Old Town. 

9. YOU WILL BE A PART OF THE HISTORY, CULTURE AND TRADITION! People have been spending the Holiday Season in Old Town for the past 307 years. For over three centuries Old Town has been the crossroads of the Southwest. It is a Historical Zone of the City of Albuquerque and is still home to many families whose ancestors founded the town. Shopping in Old Town is a celebration of what it means to live in the Southwest!

10. YOU ARE CREATING GOODWILL AND WILL FEEL GOOD ABOUT THE MONEY YOU SPENT! You’ll feel great that you found spectacular gifts for the people you love; sold to you by people who not only LOVE what they do, but are legitimately grateful for your purchase and truly appreciate your business. You supported Albuquerque’s economy! Good for you!
