Winterhaven's Festival of Lights begins soon

By Leasa Conze - email

TUCSON, AZ (KOLD) - One of Tucson's most popular holiday traditions, Winterhaven's Festival of Lights, is set to begin December 12 and runs through December 26.

This will be the 59th year Winterhaven residents decorate their front yards and homes with elaborate displays that bring delight to everyone who tours the neighborhood, not to mention the huge Aleppo pine trees that line nearly every street decked out in lights.

By the time the tradition ends this year, thousands of people will have visited, and that means a great deal to the Community Food Bank. 

There is no entrance fee, but visitors are asked to bring canned food or to make a monetary donation and at this time of year, both are sorely needed.

The Community Food Bank hands out more than 30,000 food boxes every month.

This year visitors can walk through Winterhaven every night from 6:00pm-10:00pm and drive-through nights will be December 15, 17th, and 26th.
