PHOENIX – Even though there’s not snow on the ground in parts of Arizona, there’s still plenty of holiday-themed events taking place around the Valley.

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, there are a number of traditional holiday light displays that will not take place like downtown Tempe’s Fantasy of Lights parade and boat parade.

The annual APS Light Parade will also not take place, but ABC15 will air a 60-minute presentation on Dec. 6 at 4 p.m. that will include video from the 2019 parade in addition to new messages from community leaders and organizations.

Here are a variety of activities around the Valley to help you get in the festive spirit.

Check out each event to see how they are taking cautions to mitigate the spread of coronavirus this year.

If you have a location you would like to add to the map, please email us at news923@ktar.com.

We want to hear from you.
