On December 22 at 1:00 P.M. a 600-800 foot natural rainbow will be created in the sky over Young Park in conjunction with the end of the Mayan Calendar. The event “A New World Celebration of Life,” will be held in the northwest corner of the park. This free event is coordinated by the Rainbow Around the World Foundation dedicated to La Pinon on behalf of the Las Cruces children in crisis and the community partners who work to create a healthy environment for them to grow.
The rainbow and the event are being established in the spirit of Noah and the covenant from God symbolizing the beginning of a new world. The event sponsors are requesting that people coming to the event to see the rainbow bring the sun with them to insure it will appear. Adults and children wishing to actually walk into the rainbow and see what is actually at the end of the rainbow are advised to bring umbrellas.
