1. Tucson: Botanical Gardens Holiday Lights Festival Ticket
Take a stroll through a glittering wonderland of more than a million lights, custom-built installations, and pieces created by local artisans at this year’s LightsUp! A Festival of Illumination. Be dazzled by a 50-foot light tunnel, dancing cypress trees, and the golden world of luminarias. Experience the warm glow of 3,000 luminarias, or paper lanterns, which create a magical display that is a beloved 30-year-old tradition in Tucson. Enter six distinct and thematically connected areas that will captivate your imagination with their own unique color palettes. Designed by nationally-renowned public garden landscape architect Tres Fromme, the Botanical Gardens Holiday Lights show is a carefully curated and artfully sequenced series of illuminated experiences that transform the gardens.
