Find Bugg Lights at Menaul School

What started as an Albuquerque Christmas tradition in the northeast heights at the Bugg household has now settled into its permanent home at the Menaul School. The seasonal display was well known for its ever growing display.

See the show weekend nights through Christmas Eve, and some additional nights as the month moves closer to Christmas day. There is always hot chocolate for sale, and although the event is free, donations are welcome. Find the Menaul School at 301 Menaul, just west of the I-25 interchange and east of Broadway.

The Bugg Lights display is free, but donations are gladly accepted. Money raised helps maintain the lights and funds the annual mission students participate in each spring. Parking is also free. Like the school, the display has a great deal of heart, and it's easily found right in the middle of Albuquerque.

2013 Bugg Lights Display Schedule
For 2013, the Bugg Lights will have The Ten Nights of Christmas.

Each night of Bugg Lights, Santa's Workshop will be open. Bring young children so they can sit in Santa's lap. Santa's Workshop takes place in the Menaul cafeteria, where other entertainment takes place as well. Enjoy some hot chocolate while listening to music or watching performers. Santa's Workshop stays open all evening.
