LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - A 32-year-old tradition continues Sunday evening at New Mexico State University with the illumination of thousands of luminarias on the Las Cruces campus.

The “Noche de Luminarias” display of more than 7,100 luminarias is scheduled for 6-9 p.m. and serves as a start of holiday-season festivities and entertainment.

The Las Cruces High School band will set up the display, starting at the Educational Services Building, continuing along the International Mall, surrounding the Corbett Center Student Union, extending to Barnes and Noble and finishing at the University Museum.

The event is free and open to the public. It started in 1984 as the President’s Holiday Reception.
