The 95th annual burning of Zozobra is a long-awaited only-in-Santa-Fe event that culminates with lighting a 50-foot marionette on fire. The oversized puppet is filled with handwritten “glooms,” so when it catches flame, it symbolizes exorcising sorrows.

Cost: Advance tickets are $10. Day-of tickets cost $15.
