This tradition came to Mexico from Spain in the 19th century, and was adopted by this Dubuque neighborhood in 1935.  Look for 1500 luminaries lining the sidewalks on Christmas night beginning at 5:00 PM.

Thank you to everyone involved in keeping this tradition alive and well this year.  Merry Christmas!
