SANTA FE (KRQE) – It’s official, the annual burning of Zozobra will happen on a Friday this year.

The torching of the giant puppet has been part of Santa Fe’s fiesta for decades.

This week the Kiwanis Club of Santa Fe announced that the burning will happen on Friday august 29th in Fort Marcy Park.

For decades the organization has burned the large puppet on a Thursday, but people complained saying it was hard for families to attend. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
