TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Many Tucsonans are getting in the Christmas spirit as Winterhaven kicks off.

Families bundled up, drinking coffee or hot chocolate are enjoying the scenery of lights and it's all for a good cause.

The 63rd annual "Festival of Lights" includes homes between Prince and Fort Lowell and between Tucson and Country Club.

You can see the lights for free, but you're encouraged to bring canned goods. They go to Tucson Community Food Bank. Volunteeres say people have been generous this year with donating food and cash.

The Festival of Lights will go on until the Saturday after Christmas. Some of those nights will be drive through.
