Fountain Hills, Arizona has one of the tallest fountains in the world. At one time the magnificent fountain that can be seen from miles away was listed in Guinness World Records. And even though taller fountains have come up everywhere since then, this fountain and the Avenue of Fountains attract more people around Christmas. This has to do with the 60,000 glowing lights and ornaments that turn this place into one of the popular Events in Phoenix. Under these lights, people like to stroll in the glow and fill the spirit of Christmas fill their hearts. From the first Saturday in December until the end of the month, the lights create an atmosphere of festivities for the whole family.
The stroll starts every evening between 5 pm and 8 pm. You start from the Avenue of Fountains and make your way under the lights to Fountain Park where the magnificent fountain greets you with its own wonderful display. Along the way you get serenaded with live music, colorful local shops offering nourishment and snacks, and of course the live nativity scene. No Christmas would be complete without the blessed scene of Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus.
It might be that Fountain Hills is short on reindeer, or maybe because Santa Claus likes to arrive in style, he makes his appearance to the folks down at Fountain Park in his own fire truck. He might also have forgotten to bring presents, but he would be happy to take photos with the children in the fire truck, which come to think of it is the best Christmas present a child could dream of! It’s the time for the whole family to rejoice and celebrate.
