Luminarias and a Christmas tree will be lit. Warm your hands by the traditional horno fire. Enjoy hot chocolate and cookies. Docents will be available for nighttime tours. La Cocina and Old Town Artisans shops and restaurants will be open late for dinner and shopping. 
Return on Saturday, Dec. 14, for an evening Living History Luminaria Night with re-enactors presenting nighttime activities and musket demonstrations.
The Presidio San Agustín del Tucson Museum is a re-creation of the Tucson Presidio built in 1775. Visitors travel back in time to learn about life as early Tucsonans would have lived it.  Docent tours discuss life in the Santa Cruz Valley for early Native Americans, Presidio residents and Territorial Period settlers.  See the archaeological remains of a pit house, walk along the original Presidio wall and experience a 150 year old classic Sonoran Row house.
