In just two days, we celebrate Thanksgiving. There is still time to contribute to the Gospel Rescue Mission and Salvation Army food drives. (If you read this after Thanksgiving, they still need help feeding people experiencing food insecurity for the holidays as well as the rest of the year. So, please consider donating what you can, when you can.) To get you into the Christmas spirit once the Thanksgiving leftovers are put away, you might want to take the family to LightsUp! Tucson 2022.

LightsUp! Tucson 2022
One of our most popular and beloved holiday events kicks off the Christmas season the day after Thanksgiving. Tucson Botanical Gardens illuminates the night skies with gorgeous light displays throughout the grounds. Edna's Eatery helps you keep up your strength while you walk through the gardens with its "grab and go" menu. Parking at the gardens is extremely limited. If you end up parking outside of the gardens, please be courteous. Watch out for "no parking" signs and never block someone's driveway.
LightsUp! starts at 5:30 pm and ends at 9:30 pm every Tuesday through Sunday between November 25th and January 15th. The gardens will be closed on Mondays, Christmas Eve, New Year's Eve, and New Year's Day. Tickets will not be sold at the gate. Instead, you must purchase them ahead of time. That means picking a specific date and time to attend. They also offer a "flex option" that allows you to reschedule your visit one time only due to either weather or some other unforeseen circumstance. Non-member pricing runs $28 for kids ages four to 17 and $30 for adults ages 18 and above. Members receive a $2 discount for each person. For flex tickets, you pay an extra $10 each.
