Can you believe we're on this side of the holidays? I guess when you look back, they came and went pretty quickly. I hope the New Year is treating you well, and I have some good news! If you thought you missed some of the fun winter/holiday events the Valley has to offer, many of them are still going on! Here's a list!
Ending this weekend:
Merry Main Street in Downtown Mesa
Winter Waterland at OdySea Aquarium
CitySkate Holiday Ice Rink at CityScape
Holiday Lights at McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park in Scottsdale
World Of Illumination in Tempe and Glendale
Glendale Glitters through 1/11
Skate Westgate at Westgate Entertainment District continues through 1/12
Lights Of The World Lantern Festival at the Arizona State Fairgrounds continues Thursdays through Sundays through 1/12
Zoolights at the Phoenix Zoo runs through 1/19, and this Saturday evening (1/4), the Phoenix zoo celebrates Noche De Reyes Magos, or Night of The Three Kings! This Latino holiday commemorates the day when the Three Wise Men followed the star to Bethlehem, and arrived bearing their treasured gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh for the Baby Jesus. The evening event (5:30 to 8:30) will feature a traditional celebration including activities, mariachis and a chance to visit with the Three Kings. Admission into Noche de Reyes Magos is included with regular ZooLights admission. A lighted pathway of luminarias will guide you to the Savanna park/lakeside area where the Three Kings will be and all activities will take place!
