It may be only mid-October, but that’s not too soon to start thinking about the upcoming American Holiday season! The U.S. holiday season in recent years has begun prior to Thanksgiving, and drive-through Christmas light spectaculars are no exception!
Starting November 15th, Phoenix residents and visitors to the Valley will get a chance to experience the amazing “Illumination: Symphony of Light”, billed as Arizona’s largest holiday drive-thru light show. This incredible family-friendly experience gives attendees a technologically advanced light and sound attraction that’s fun for everyone.
The “Illumination” event puts those in the car right in the middle of the holiday festivities. Participants tune their FM radio to a set station, which syncs up the holiday sounds with the festive lights all around them on the 1-mile plus journey through the grounds.
Drivers will take a 25-minute winding journey through the magical light-filled grounds in North Phoenix. The wonder and joy of the holiday season is reflected in the illuminated holiday icons throughout the drive, and the accompany holiday music. After the journey through the park, visitors can enjoy the Holiday Boulevard, which is described as “a winter playland that includes an impressive 30-foot spiral tree light sculpture (the only of its kind in the U.S.), walk-thru ornament, giant snowman, Santa’s village, kid’s jumper land, food trucks, selfie stations and other merry memory-making experiences.”
Located off the I-17 at Jomax Road, the Illumination holiday light show opens on Wednesday, November 15th. Cost per car is $29.50, and an additional $10 for the Holiday Boulevard.
Part of each admission will go to charity. This year’s recipient of the funds is the Phoenix Children’s Hospital. The Illumination organization also has plans in place to set up additional fundraising options for school organizations and other non-profits.
Get your holiday joy started in November, with a trip to Illumination in North Phoenix!
