Ahwatukee Festival of Lights

Unless you’ve traveled in the southwest United States, you may never have seen Christmas lights done quite like this before:

When we first moved to Arizona and our children were small, we’d make a point to drive down to the Ahwatukee foothills south of Phoenix to see the lighted cacti.

How do you string lights on a cactus? Very carefully. I tried it one year. Not fun, but very pretty.

  1. It’s so beautiful, I’ve never seen a cactus decorated with those Christmas lights before. Hope I can see that this coming Christmas to personally capture those wonderful things. By the way, It was great to see your post. Thanks a lot for sharing.
