The Christmas season means many things for different people. The best part of the Christmas season, in my opinion, is the Christmas lights. You can find different displays in different areas, but in Tucson, Christmas lights get an upgrade. From entire communities to businesses and more; Christmas lights in Tucson are a treat for the whole family. Some of the displays are part of the fun at festivals, and others can be seen during a walk through. No matter how you enjoy them, Christmas lights in Tucson are an excellent way to bring in the season with loved ones.

Christmas lights in Tucson can be part of a festival, community celebration, and even the businesses get into the spirit of the season!

Winterhaven Festival of Lights

When a community works together, the outcome can be fantastic. Winterhaven Festival of Lights is a prime example of a beautiful community. For 66 years the town has hosted the Winterhaven Festival of Lights. Every home is decorated with lights, and all they ask is that you bring a donation for the Community Food Bank. You can help fight hunger and enjoy an amazing light display, what could be better than that?

Holiday Nights A Million Lights | Tohono Chul 7366 N. Paseo del Norte

Talk a walk through the gardens that are transformed with over a million lights for the holidays. There will also be entertaining surprises around many corners. Holiday Nights a Million Lights is a tradition that has amazed the community year after year and will continue to do so again this year.

Zoo Lights 2016 | Reid Park Zoo 3400 Zoo Court

For years, Reid Park Zoo has brought family and friends together for a night at the zoo. Instead of just animals, you can also see the zoo covered in twinkling lights. Not only can you enjoy Christmas Lights at Reid Park Zoo, but you can also enjoy a cup of hot cocoa while snow falls around you. Before ending the night, be sure to enjoy some rides, see Santa, and of course check out all the animals.
