The Weekend Before Christmasby Jim Gressinger on Dec. 19, 2012, under Performing Arts
If you are still looking for the Christmas Spirit or haven’t run out of it yet, here is a short list of things to do in Tucson, for your holiday entertainment. I cannot promise that you can still get tickets but it is certainly worth a try.
Friday, Saturday and Sunday
Zoo Lights at Reid Park
The Zoo is lit up from 6pm – 8pm. Walk through the Zoo and enjoy the lights. Be sure to dress warm.
Visit the Website for more information
Winterhaven Festival of Lights
Every Holiday Season the neighborhood of Winterhaven, Ft. Lowell district, puts on a fantastic display of lights. Walk, or take a hayride or trolley. Reserve your tickets here. There are Drive-thru nights as well, but it is very crowded at these times, so be prepared to drive slowly and take your time. The Winterhaven area is between Prince and Ft. Lowell and Tucson Blvd and Country Club.
