Farolito sand available at county locations

-A A +A

Los Alamos County is helping the community get into the spirit once again by offering farolito sand at locations around the county.

The sand is now available in several places. The county’s Traffic and Streets Division placed sand at the following locations to fill farolito bags:

• Sullivan Field

• 42nd by Urban Park

• Deer Trap on Barranca Mesa

• Soccer Field parking lot on North Mesa

• The parking lot by the transfer station in White Rock

The community is invited to come out and get sand to fill their farolito bags. Farolitos are favorite holiday decorations in New Mexico. The decorations consist of filling small paper bags with sand and a candle, then placed on roofs and walkways.
