Route 66 Shop & Glow

Revel in the light of the season while shopping local along Central Avenue.

Route 66 Shop & Glow Graphic - New

Thank you for supporting local!

The Route 66 Shop & Glow will be glowing from 5-9 p.m. throughout the holiday season! 

The Route 66 Shop & Glow is a newly imagined experience that will provide shoppers with illuminated curbside pick-up along Central Avenue. The City of Albuquerque installed River of Lights sculptures to bring twinkled treasures to Albuquerque businesses. In addition, local artists have been commissioned to design and install illuminated art displays in shop windows. As customers pick-up holiday purchases, they can enjoy glowing snowmen, flowers, icicles, animals and more. The City of Albuquerque is committed to supporting local businesses as well as the city's creative economy.

New Release: Wednesday, December 2, 2020.
