Kick-Off Party for the Festival of Lights this Weekend!
One of Ahwatukee‘s largest events is about to begin this Saturday, the 18th annual Festival of Lights. This Kick-Off Celebration will have family fun for everyone in the community!
Over 15,000 people are expected to head to popular event Nov. 30. There will be endless holiday shopping at the Holiday Marketplace Street Fair, carnival rides, live-music, village eateries and some cold, refreshing beer at the beer garden.
According to AZCentral.com, some locals are more than ready for this year, “The Festival of Lights Committee really wanted to freshen up our entertainment stage by bringing in new talent,” said Rod Badgley, who, with wife Christine, owns Ahwatukee-based Logistics Group, which is once again sponsoring the Festival of Lights Entertainment Stage and Beer Garden.
Opening Thanksgiving night are the holiday-lights display in the Chandler Boulevard median. They are also still looking for volunteers for this year’s festivities.
