Friday, Dec. 6, 5 p.m.

Join us in the Sanderson Lincoln Pavilion as we light up Carefree Desert Gardens, all dressed up for the holidays!

The evening begins with a performance by the bell choir from Desert Hills Presbyterian Church. Next, enjoy a medley of classic and new holiday tunes, performed by the Black Mountain Elementary Junior and Senior Bobcat Choruses, as well as a blended choral group from Sonoran Trails Middle School and Cactus Shadows High School.

Then we’ll progress by ‘candlelight’ to the tree,where Mayor Peterson and a special guest (Santa!) will flip the APS switch to light up the gardens!

After, we’ll return to the Sanderson Lincoln Pavilion to enjoy a screening of the holiday classic, Elf.

Complimentary popcorn, cookies, hot chocolate, coffee and water will be available, as well as treats for purchase. A free holiday gift will be distributed to each child/family in attendance.
