GLISTENING FESTIVITES OF LAS NOCHES DE LAS LUMINARIAS RETURN TO DESERT BOTANICAL GARDENOctober 4, 2019
Phoenix, Sept. 30, 2019 – Celebrate the spirit of the season with tickets to one of Arizona’s longest-running holiday traditions—Las Noches de las Luminarias. Tickets for Garden Members go on sale Oct. 1 and Oct. 15 for the general public.
On select nights in November and December, stroll the Garden’s trails lined with 8,000 flickering luminaria bags, gaze at twinkling lights with a warm drink in hand and admire the enchanting glow of Wild Rising by Cracking Art creatures. Happen upon toe-tapping tunes from eclectic entertainment groups and cherish the time spent with friends and family during the holiday season.
A special addition to the festivities this year will be La Posada on Dec. 17. Celebrate the Mexican holiday tradition of La Posada at the Garden. Cherish the time spent with family and friends, join in the festivities of two singing processions through the Garden, break piñatas, and savor traditional food and drinks.
Traveling straight from Milan, the Garden is presenting Wild Rising by Cracking Art—an installation of more than 1,000 animal sculptures made from colorful and recyclable plastic. Visitors of all ages will be drawn to engage with these vibrant creatures and to discover that plastic does not have to end up in landfills, but it can be reinvented into something eye-catching and thought-provoking.
