PHOENIX —  A number of holiday celebrations in the Valley are returning this year after being interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.

Holiday favorites returning to in-person events this year include the APS Light Parade in Phoenix and the Tumbleweed Tree Lighting and Parade in Chandler.

From “snowfalls” to ice skating rinks, tree lightings, holiday markets and everything in between, there’s plenty to do in metro Phoenix to celebrate the season.

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

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