FARMINGTON – In connection with the Aztec Sparkles event, the city of Aztec is hoping to promote local shopping through the annual Santa's Gift Bag drawing.


People who spend more than $50 at an Aztec business can take their receipt to the Aztec Visitors Center, Aztec Senior-Community Center or Aztec Public Library to be entered in the drawing, Mayor Sally Burbridge said during a City Commission meeting on Nov. 17.

The gift bag is made up of items donated by Aztec businesses.

The event begins Friday, and people who spend $50 or more at an Aztec business on Black Friday or Small Business Saturday will be entered twice in the drawing.

Receipts dated through Dec. 15 are eligible for the drawing, and receipts must be submitted by Dec. 17.

In addition to the large gift bag, there will be drawings for two smaller stocking stuffers.
