PHOENIX — In need of some holiday cheer this month?

Here are three ways Glendale can get you in the mood for December:

Nov. 10

The Historic Downtown Glendale Merchants Association will hold a Christmas Village event in Old Towne and Catlin Court on Saturday from noon to 8 p.m.

Businesses in the downtown area will decorate their window displays and hold a synchronized storefront lighting ceremony at 5:30 p.m.

There will be holiday music, crafts for children and an opportunity to make ornaments for the city’s Patriotic Community Tree.

From 10 a.m. to noon, local businesses will hold an early-bird holiday shopping event with complimentary gift-wrapping.

Guests can find a map and list of activities at the information booth on the corner of 58th and West Glenn drives.

Nov. 23

The 25th annual Glendale Glitters celebration kicks off on Nov. 23.

The largest free light display in Arizona includes 1.6 million LED lights spread across 16 blocks in downtown Glendale.

The mayor and City Council will turn on the lights at 6 p.m. following a countdown show at 5:30 p.m.

The lights will be turned on nightly 5-11 p.m. through Jan. 12.

Nov. 25

Glendale will offer horse-drawn carriage rides through downtown for $25 starting Nov. 25.

The carriages can seat four to six people and will be available daily through Jan. 10.

The ride path takes guests through the blocks participating in the Glendale Glitters event.

The carriage stop is located at the northwest corner of 58th Avenue and Glenn Drive.
