Dr. Mitzi shares a Christmas and Holiday Season message from the spectacular backdrop of the beautiful Mesa, Arizona Temple Garden Christmas Lights display. 

This year’s display  marks the 30th anniversary of the light extravaganza featuring hundreds of thousands of colorful twinkling lights, a large nativity display and holiday dioramas and is entitled Celebrate the Life of Christ in Lights and Music.  The gardens,  located at 525 E. Main Street in Mesa, are lit  from 5:30 until 10 p.m. each night through January 1, 2010. 

Each year approximately one million visitors, of all faiths and denominations come out to see the magnificent display.  Over 800 volunteers donate more than 10,000 hours of labor throughout the holiday season to create and maintain the display.  In addition to the breathtaking lights there’s also a Concert Series featuring free half-hour concerts given by a variety of groups and musical styles, presented at 7 p.m. each evening through December 31, 2009.

Admission and parking are free. Regardless of what winter holiday you are celebrating, or what faith you adhere to, this incredible display is sure to  "light " up  your season.
