Christmas time is in full swing. Did anyone make it to one of the Christmas tree lightings in Oro Valley or Marana? If not, you can still enjoy their beauty by visiting before the end of the year. Plus, the Botanical Gardens hosts their LightsUp! event through January 15th, 2023. You definitely need to make plans to bring your friends and family to that one! But if you're looking for a local tree to fawn over, then you need to see the one at Jacome Plaza. For added fun, take a picture in front of it and enter it in the Tucson Christmas Photo Contest 2022 for your chance at a prize.
Tucson Christmas Photo Contest 2022
Have you visited Jacome Plaza to see their Christmas tree? It's gorgeous! Downtown Tucson Partnership wants everyone to enjoy this holiday scene. But they need your help to spread the good cheer. How? Snap a pic. Win a prize. OK. It might not be that easy. But, your pics do offer a chance at winning a gift card for $100 to spend at one of the businesses in the downtown Tucson area.
To enter the Tucson Christmas Photo Contest, simply visit Jacome Plaza anytime between now and the end of the day on January 2nd, 2023. Pull out your smartphone, snap a photo in front of the tree, and post it on your Instagram account. Make sure to add #TucsonXmasTree and tag @DowntownTucson on your post. That's it! Your photo automatically enters you into the contest. Winners will be announced after January 2nd. First place gets reposted on Downtown Tucson's Instagram account as well. Good luck and happy snapping!
Tucson Parade of Lights
This year's Parade of Lights takes place starting at 6:30 pm on Saturday, December 17th. The parade starts at 17th and Stone and winds its way through the downtown area to Armory Park. This popular event brings a crowd each year. Organizers strongly suggest getting there early to find a good spot along the parade route. Make sure to bring your lawn chairs and a warm blanket or two. Also, be aware that the area around the parade route will be blocked off to regular vehicular traffic early in the day. Your best spots to watch the parade from include St Augustine's Cathedral, the Children's Museum, and, of course, Armory Park. Happy holidays!
