Bringing Ahwatukee Together Since 1995
FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS KICK-OFF PARTY
Saturday, November 30, 2019
Desert Foothills Park
Each year, nearly one million white lights illuminate Chandler Boulevard West during the holiday season. Celebrating the “kickoff” of the light display is a daylong “Kick Off Party” festival, now in its 24th year, including rides, games, 100+ marketkplace vendors, live entertainment on 2 stages, 20 restaurants/food trucks, cornhole tournament and a large beer garden (Noon – 9pm: one hour later this year!) at Desert Foothills Park on the corner of Chandler Blvd. and Desert Foothills Parkway in Ahwatukee Foothills.
The climax of this festival is the lighted Motorcycle Parade – bikes decorated for Christmas and escorted by the City of Phoenix Police Department followed by Santa Claus, through the Park, now in its 18th year and historically has included up to 100 riders of any type of motorcycle. Meet at 6pm at the Foothills Baptist Church at 21st Street and Chandler Blvd. where we will pick up our police escort. At 6:15pm, depart the church and enter the park, parading through nearly 15,000 festival-attendees. We are arriving at the park before the end of the festival so that the bikers may enjoy the festivities. No registration is necessary. For more information, contact us.
