ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Tickets for Albuquerque’s annual luminaria tour have sold out in record time.

The city’s transit system, ABQ RIDE, says the 3,600 tickets that were available for the Christmas Eve event were gone in about four hours. It took 12 hours to sell out last year.

ABQ Ride has been helping with the tour for more than 50 years.

Six separate tours will leave from the Albuquerque Convention Center on Christmas Eve, the first at 5:30 p.m. and the last at 7:25 p.m. Each will last about 45 minutes.

Participants will get to see countless luminarias - or candles that are placed inside paper bags weighted with sand - and other Christmas lights on their tour through historic and other well-known neighborhoods in Albuquerque.
