Real Estate Agent with United Real Estate SA542701000

The Arizona Celebration of Lights includes more than 7,000,000 lights and 300 animated and still displays. In order to see it, you actually stay in your car and drive through it! The organizers boast that it is Arizona's largest display of holiday lights. They anticipate that during this holiday season, about 140,000 people will pass through the display.

Where is the Arizona Celebration of Lights?

At 99th Avenue and Loop 101 (at Thomas).

When can I see the Arizona Celebration of Lights?

Every night, including Thanksgiving and Christmas, from Saturday, November 19, 2011 through Sunday, January 1, 2012.
Sunday, Monday through Thursday: 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Friday, Saturday and Holidays: 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.

How does the Arizona Celebration of Lights work?

You'll view the light displays while driving, for about a mile, through five tunnels to see the holiday light show. You stay in your own car. On Friday through Sunday nights you can park at the end and visit Santa's Village featuring activities, food and vendors, just be aware that extra charges may apply and they only accept cash.

How much does it cost?

Passenger vehicles: $15 per vehicle Monday through Thursday; $20 per vehicle Friday through Sunday
Buses: $1 per person, $20 minimum

You may also purchasing a Fast Pass at the gate. If you are concerned about time. and the lines at the main entrance are long, Fast Passes will be available for an additional $10. This will allow you to skip the long line. It's like a VIP pass.
There are no season passes being offered in 2011.

Are there any discount coupons?

Not that I know of, but you can receive a $2 discount if you bring three cans of food to donate to St. Mary’s Food Bank or a new, unwrapped toy to donate to the Angel Tree Foundation at the gate (one discount per vehicle). There is a discount of $2 Monday through Wednesday for military personnel, teachers, and fire and police personnel (bring ID). Only one discount per vehicle.

If you buy your tickets in advance online, there is a discount, even taking the service charges into account.

Partial proceeds from the event will benefit local charities.

Hi Nancy,

You answered my questions.

How do the expenses get covered?

Who pays for the utilities, the materials, the labor?

Good ole American entrepreneurial spirit!

Sounds amazing...

Phil, Yep, no free lunch when it comes to the light show but it's pretty cheap entertainment if you have four in the car. And the displays are bigger than they look in the photo.
