The burning of the Zozobra (aka Old Man of Gloom), a 50 ft tall marionette is presented every year by the Kiwanis Club of Santa Fe. One of Santa Fe's unique cultural traditions began in 1924, when artist Will Shuster conceived of a giant "Old Man Gloom" effigy stuffed with people's written hardships of the previous year. The 50 foot tall papier-mache puppet is torched annually before 23,000 screaming people and powerfully symbolizes the purging of undesirable experiences. Event occurs at Fort Marcy Park.
