Presidio San Agustin: Luminaria Night is Saturday, Dec. 13, from 5 to 9 p.m. at the historic Presidio, 196 N. Court Ave,one block north of the old domed court house. The evening is a beautiful setting to visit Tucson's historic fort, listen to some music and top it all off with some hot chocolate and cookies. The cannon fires at dusk, kicking off the holiday season. There will be dance performances from Barbea Williams and music performed by the Presidio Flute Circle and Nuevo Mundo Chorale. The gift shop will be open. General hours are Wednesday through Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. for docent tours and other demonstrations. The Presidio was built in 1775 by Spanish soldiers and at its height about 400 people lived within its walls including Spanish soldiers and their families, a priest, blacksmith, and Native Americans. For more on the Presidio, go to www.TucsonPresidio.org.
