Light Display on Chandler Blvd. From 24th St. to Desert Foothills

The white light holiday display originally started by Del Webb Corporation as a marketing tool for their master planned community, The Foothills. It ran from 1992-94 and then went dark for two years. A core group of friends and neighbors from The Foothills and Club West concocted the idea to bring back the lights during a holiday party and Festival of Lights was born. Ever since 1996, Chandler Boulevard has been aglow with holiday white lights due to the tireless efforts of countless volunteers and a dedicated community.


From Thanksgiving until the New Year, Chandler Boulevard from 24th Street to Desert Foothills Parkway is illuminated with more than a million white LED lights. Our incredible desert landscape is decked out with miniature white lights and with clusters of white strands high amongst the treetops. This signature event in the Ahwatukee Foothills really lights up the community and has become known Vallywide bringing in tour buses and lightlookers. The display can be seen nightly from 6pm-11pm from Thanksgiving through New Year's Night.
