A shining Christmas in a once-dead mining town. Madrid, New Mexico

pet angel santa fe presents a pet friendly trip to Madrid, NM

A place to visit. Pet friendly trip.

One of the Santa Fe, NM area tourist attraction on hwy 14 between Albuquerque and Santa Fe. Beautiful ride on Turquoise trail, nice scenery, must visit historical mine related small towns, such as Cerrillos, Madrid. Hidden treasure: find an Opera house in Cerrillos.

Once upon a time the merriest Christmas in the Southwest came courtesy of some lumps of coal. An electrified Christmas wonderland was built in the mining town of Madrid, New Mexico, which once attracted thousands of visitors. While the mine has long closed, that tradition continues today, in a community that hosts an off-beat Christmas parade, funky shops and boutiques, and twinkling Yuletide lights, featured in www.cbsnews.com.
