Saturday, December 12, 2009. Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village held our 36th Annual Festival of Lights throughout the village. Although it had rained earlier in the day, the weather in the afternoon and evening was perfect. Warmer temperatures welcomed visitors to the village to take part in the festive holiday events. There was music in each and every courtyard along with spectacular holiday decorations. Santa Claus granted wishes to children of all ages as Tom and Shondra sang Christmas songs. The highlight was the lighting of 6,000 luminarias throughout the village.
