Now in its 33rd season, this East Valley tradition is free for all to enjoy. Palm trees are wrapped from top to bottom in chromatic lights, the pristine gardens are illuminated and glowing balls float in the large rectangular fountain, while the surrounding lights reflect off the water surface. Religious scenes are depicted on the sprawling lawns, and the visitors center is open throughout the season.
Details: 5-10 p.m. through Monday, Dec. 31. Mesa Temple, 525 E. Main St. Free. 480-964-7164, mesachristmaslights.com.
