In a celebration of everything merry and bright, the Arizona Lights in the Night drive-thru holiday light show welcomes Valley families to experience the magic of over one million lights synchronized to holiday music beginning Wednesday, Nov. 23.
Arizona Lights in the Night takes place at the Thompson Event Center, 1901 N. Alma School Road, near Loops 101 and 202 in Mesa. The drive-thru light show is a way for families to kick off the holiday season and make memories that will last a lifetime, according to a release.
Tickets to Arizona Lights in the Night begin at $39.95 per vehicle and can be purchased at arizonalightsinthenight.com or at the gate. As families and friends travel through the drive-thru light show, they’re greeted by over one million lights glittering on candy canes, snowmen, presents, and more, all synchronized to festive holiday tunes.
New this year is the VIP train ride. Each train car has three bench seats and can hold up to six adults, 10 children or a combination of riders. Families can hop on this trackless train, which provides a one-of-a-kind ride through the light show. VIP train rides can be pre-purchased at arizonalightsinthenight.com for $150-$250 depending on the reserved night.
“Arizona Lights in the Nights is the Valley’s premier drive-thru light show that’s perfect for families and friends looking for a fun way to celebrate the holiday season,” Allen Thompson, operations manager of Arizona Lights in the Night, said in the release. “We look forward to welcoming everyone to this memorable holiday experience.”
Arizona Lights in the Night happens nightly beginning at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 23 through Jan. 5, 2023. On weeknights (Sundays through Thursdays) the lights are bright between 6-8 p.m. and on weekends (Fridays and Saturdays) guests can see them shine from 6-9 p.m.
