One of my favorite events at the Desert Botanical Gardens is Las Noches de las Luminarias. It’s a beautiful Southwestern holiday tradition that’s been taking place for 35 years. The Garden’s lovely paths are aglow with more than 8,000 lit luminaire bags and the trees sparkle with thousands of tiny white lights. Adding to the festivities are the numerous musical groups that perform throughout the garden. From Dickens carolers to bell ringers to Flamenco to steel drums to Mariachi and more, there’s music everywhere. You can also enjoy a fantastic holiday buffet served in Dorrance Hall or Southwestern favorites at the Patio Café. You have through December 30 to experience this beautiful celebration. It’s another reason why I love being here during the Holidays.
