Christmas in Payson, AZ- MAGIC ON THE MOUNTAIN!

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Leslie Prest, Prest Realty, Sales and Rentals in Payson, AZ

Yes, it's Christmas time! It has suddenly gotten cold in Payson, and it feels more like Christmas. "Magic on the Mountain" is the phrase the town uses for Christmas celebrations- we are 5,000 ft elevation, so we are "up the mountain" from the Arizona deserts. Come join the fun!

Today (Saturday, Dec. 5th) is an annual "toys for tamales" event- bring a new toy to Gerardo's Restaurant on Beeline, for a plate of tamales (10 am to 2 pm).

Tonight is the Electric Light Parade. This goes down Main Street, starting from Sawmill Crossing shopping center (so named because there used to be a working sawmill on the site) at Beeline Hwy and Main Street at 6pm. It ends up at the Green Valley Lake park for a town Christmas tree lighting
Yes, it will be COLD, so make sure to bundle up!

Tomorrow (Sunday, Dec. 6th) afternoon there is a Christmas Extravaganza- The Spirit of Christmas, at the Payson HS auditorium- 4pm and again at 6pm. Free, but please bring canned goods for the town food drive.

UPDATE- the Electric light parade was COLD, but pretty. There were near 50 entries, I believe. The Home Depot float was GORGEOUS! I forgot my camera, as usual. I hope to get to the CHristmas program tonight, BUT the AZ Cardinals football game starts at 6:30, so I may have to go alone.

Here is a link to a list of activities for Christmas in Payson.

Leslie:  Payson, AZ certainly does know how to get in the holiday spirit.  I like the idea of toys for tamales.  Bet that is a great success.

Thanks, all. The food drive is still going strong, there are lights all over town, I'm hoping for a white Christmas- it's certainly cold enough!
