Tickets for all six of ABQ RIDE’s Luminaria Tours on Christmas Eve have sold out, city officials said Wednesday.

Updated figures show all 3,600 tickets for the six tours sold out Wednesday morning. According to the city, that eclipses last year’s record for selling out the tour by five days.

On Monday, Dec. 24, people with tickets are encouraged to arrive 20 minutes prior to their scheduled departure time and can park for free at the Convention Center’s eastside parking structure at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Broadway.

Free parking will also be available for disabled and special needs individuals at the parking lot located at the northwest corner of 3rd Street and Marquette.

Tour buses will pick up passengers on 2nd Street in front of the Convention Center.

The tour takes approximately 45 minutes to one hour and travels through Old Town, the Country Club and Los Altos Neighborhoods.
