Twinkle delights

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — If you were anywhere near Albuquerque’s Nob Hill Saturday night, you probably heard a symphony of oohs and aahs carried by the breeze.

The annual Twinkle Light Parade returned as local businesses, organizations and residents rolled west on Central Avenue in decked-out automobiles of all shapes and sizes, or on festive floats, or made their way by merrily marching along.

Sherron Garcia waves to the Twinkle Light Parade participants with her granddaughter Maria Vega, left, daughter Angela Vega and Gloria Lopez in Santa hat.

Hundreds of spectators – families, couples and kids – lined the street wide-eyed from Washington to Girard to take in the city’s twinkliest event of the holiday season.

The procession – from ambulances and vintage cars to school buses and even a Grinch-inspired cement mixer – cruised by decked out in an array of Christmas lights and decorations.
