The Arizona Celebration of Lights includes more than 7,000,000 lights and 300 animated and still displays. In order to see it, you actually stay in your car and drive through it! The organizers boast that it is Arizona's largest display of holiday lights, with about 140,000 people passing through the display.

What was it about?
You drove for about a mile through five tunnels to see the holiday light show. You stayed in your own car. On Friday through Sunday nights Santa's Village featured activities, food and vendors. I wrote up some observations about the attraction, and they are on the next page.
