Celebrate the holidays with New Mexico's grandest of light shows, Christmas on the Pecos. This holiday season marks the 27th year that these enchanting boat tours along the Pecos River have transported guests through a fairyland of twinkling light displays.
This year's anniversary season runs from November 23 through December 31 (excluding December 24). Boats set sail several times each evening between 5:30 and 9:45 p.m., departing from the quaint, turn-of-the-century park located In Pecos River Village at 711 Muscatel Ave. in Carlsbad, N.M.
Each tour lasts 40 minutes, offering panoramic views of illuminated boat docks, islands and backyards decorated by more than 100 homeowners and corporate sponsors who spend hours creating the light displays. Look for display themes depicting everything from the Southwest desert to Santa's workshop, creating a magical shimmering effect with reflections in the Pecos River.
