What to do in Phoenix: Las Noches de las Luminarias

Las Noches de las Luminarias - Desert Botanical GardenIf you’re lucky enough to live in Phoenix during the holidays, you might want to think about checking out the 35th Las Noches de las Luminarias at the Desert Botanical Garden.

It runs through December 30, with the exception of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, from 5:00-9:00pm.  Not only does it feature some 8,000 luminarias that are all lit each night by a hearty group of volunteers, but it’s got some interesting entertainment, too!

It’s a really cool way to take a walk in the brisk evening air and see all of the desert and xeriscape plants lit by candlelight…and have a great time doing it.

With that, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas with good stuff growing in 2013!  And if you don’t celebrate Christmas, I send good wishes for the season.
