A unique alternative to the typical tree-lighting ceremony, Tesoro Cultural Center reenacts holiday traditions of the 19th century by lighting farolitos: paper bags filled with sand and illuminated with candles. As a part of the pinecone ceremony, guests are given a piece of paper and invited to write a message to someone who lives far away or who has passed. The message is tucked inside the pinecone and tossed into a bonfire. 19th-century revelers believed that as the fire burned, the messages were transported to the heavens. This event is free and open to the public, but registration is encouraged.
