ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Big crowds are expected to gather in Nob Hill Saturday, Dec. 7 for the annual Twinkle Light Parade.
The parade, which starts around 5:15 p.m., will roll west on Central Ave. through Nob Hill from Washington St. to Girard Blvd. That stretch of Central Ave. will be closed to traffic beginning at 2 p.m. on Saturday and will stay closed until 10 p.m.

There is free parking at the parking lot located on the southwest corner of Lomas Blvd. and University Blvd. A Park & Ride bus will then take you to the parade area.
Buses will run from 2:30 p.m. from the lot to Johnson Field throughout the event until 10:30 p.m.
