Holiday luminarias event opens at Desert Botanical

The 35th Annual of Las Noches de las Luminarias opens Friday at the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix.

It's touted as "one of the Valley's longest and most unique holiday events."

Light from 8,000 luminaria bags along with thousands of white lights will illuminate the five different paths at the garden.

"We line all of our trails with the luminarias and along our rooftops as well," said spokesman John Sallot. "Located along the trails there will be different musical groups, from Dickens Carolers to Native American Performers.

"It's a great way to get into the Holiday spirit."
