The Burning of Zozobra is expected to take place—even if the state is still dealing with a COVID-19 outbreak in September.
However, what is still unclear is whether thousands of people will be able to watch Old Man Gloom burn at Fort Marcy Park in Santa Fe.
“We obviously are going to be responsible about anything that we do," said event coordinator Ray Sandoval. "We will look to our health officials and to our government partners to make any decision. But I can tell the public that Zozobra will burn.”
Sandoval hopes people will be able to watch Zozobra burn in person, but if that's not possible, it might be a virtual experience.
