The city of Surprise has created Sparkling Surprise, a display of holiday lights and light features.
It’s spanning the Surprise Recreation Campus, 15960 N. Bullard Ave., including Surprise Community Park and outside Surprise Stadium, each night from 5:30 p.m. to dawn through Tuesday, Jan. 3.
Sparkling Surprise is free to experience and includes numerous spots for selfies, group shots or even family photos.
Pose with a 30-foot-tall Christmas tree with more than 18,000 lights, a 20-foot-tall snowman, giant candy canes, Santa’s sleigh, a large gingerbread man, lighted displays of caribou in the park and aquatic animals near Surprise Aquatic Center.
The city reminds drivers to slow down, pay attention to the road and be mindful of pedestrians when traveling on Bullard Avenue.
There are light towers for added visual safety, and the Surprise Police Department will be patrolling the area, but the city is asking attendees to park and enjoy the light displays from outside vehicles.
