SANTA FE -- The Kiwanis Club promises cheaper tickets and easier parking and transportation for this year's Burning of Zozobra.

Tickets to the event, which is scheduled for Sept. 5, have dropped from $20 to $10. Children under 10 can get in for free.

Parking will be a flat-fee of $5 at downtown facilities and the Railyard garage:

Attendees who want to stretch their legs and don't mind parking a little farther from the Fort Marcy Park can park at the Rail Yard Garage, located at 503 Camino de la Familia.

Free shuttle and bus service will be available to take people to and from the parking lots and other locations. 

Old Man Gloom will burn at Fort Marcy Park. The event takes place from 6 to 9 p.m.

Proceeds from the burning of Zozobra are returned to the community in the form of grants or scholarships.
