Night Lights

Nothing beats a New Year hangover (or at least keeps the kids occupied while you recover) like gazing at a blazing display of more than 7 million bulbs at a slow-moving, drive-through pace. This year’s Arizona Celebration of Lights concludes Sunday, January 1, from 6 to 9 p.m. It’s one of Phoenix’s largest holiday light experiences, with hundreds of individual light displays throughout the Phoenix Event Complex.

Following the tour, make sure to stop at Santa's Village for a hot chocolate, snacks, and a photo op.

Mondays-Thursdays, Sundays, 6-9 p.m.; Fridays, Saturdays, 6-10 p.m. Starts: Dec. 20. Continues through Jan. 1, 2011
