Didn't have time to put up the Christmas lights this year? No bother. Historic Phoenix neighborhood Willo is pulling out all the stops to give you the scenic holiday stroll you've been searching for.
Starting at 5 p.m. Tuesday, December 24, the Willo community will be decking their downtown digs with holiday luminaries lined up and down residential sidewalks.
Neighbors and outside visitors are invited to take a free tour of the landmark area comprised of early 20th century revival home styles including Pueblo, Tudor, Greek, American Colonial, and Spanish Colonial -- many of which will also be decorated with their own holiday light displays.
Think of it as the winter warmup to the Willow Home Tour in February. For more information, visit willohistoricdistrict.com.
