Winter Wonderland "Night of Lights" Kick-Off / November 28th
Grab your friends, family (and your mask) and join us in Downtown Flagstaff for a special evening! Due to the overwhelming concern with crowds, we will not be hosting our normal Winter Wonderland and Tree Lighting event this year. However, you will be able to see all the holiday lights come on downtown this year in a safe and socially distant way with our new event... the Winter Wonderland "Night of Lights!" With this new "kick off" lighting event, you can be anywhere in Downtown Flagstaff to see the holiday lights turn on! The lights will turn on at approximately 5:30pm on November 28th. It will truly be a beautiful evening, and the perfect way to ring in the holiday season while keeping our community safe & healthy! PLUS! If you can't make it to this kick-off lighting event, don't fret! Everyday until mid January (around 5:30pm) you can come downtown to watch the holiday lights turn on and experience all the Downtown Flagstaff has to offer! After the lights come on downtown, take a stroll through the local shops or even grab dinner and drinks at your favorite restaurant.
More details are to come. Check back to our Facebook page for updates!
