Each year as we sit back and relax after a Thanksgiving feast, Ahwatukee residents gear up for one of their biggest community events.  For weeks we see them out working diligently on Chandler BLVD.  People on lifts and step stools draping ocotillos, mesquites, and Ironwood trees with holiday glitter.  Thousands of brilliant lights brighten up the boulevard, beckoning in the holiday season. 

Ahwatukee has always had a strong sense of community, and the holidays and festivities that surround them is literally a shining example of how this community celebrates together.  Each year on the first Saturday after Thanksgiving the Festival of Lights in Ahwatukee kicks off with a community experience that embraces all the sense. 

Fun in the park


There are two event stages, marching bands, a market place street fair, drum crops, pet parade, dancers, singers, food and the day concludes with a lighted motorcycle parade and a visit from Santa himself.  Its an opportunity to go out and meet your neighbors, make new friends and enjoy the many parks and outdoor opportunities Ahwatukee has to offer.  But it is the lights that we all really come for.  That magical hour when the sun is bidding us farewell and the sky begins its transition from crystal blue to brilliant oranges and reds to the ever deepening colors of midnight blue and black.   And in a blink of an eye the twinkling lights begin to mark the way down Chandler BLVD. Creating whimsical patterns as they seem to dance on the trees and shrub lining the boulevard. It is truly a sight to be enjoyed.
