Downtown Glendale Sparkles, Shines & Glitters as States's Largest Free Holiday Light Display Kicks off November 27
What is more synonymous with the magic of holiday lights in the Valley of the Sun than Glendale Glitters? Glendale’s award-winning holiday festival has become a family tradition across the Valley and state, and this year the 23rd annual celebration kicks off on Friday, Nov. 27 and Saturday, Nov. 28, from 5-10 p.m. each evening.
Kurt and Brenda Warner will be the special guests that will help light up the city during the Countdown to Glendale Glitters Show on Nov. 27 at 5:30 p.m. This year, the event’s theme will be ‘a few of my favorite holiday things,’ and following an entertaining stage show, the Warners will help the Mayor and City Council flip the switch on 1.5 million lights throughout downtown Glendale.
The stunning display of 1.5 million LED lights will illuminate sixteen blocks of Historic Downtown Glendale, making it the largest free holiday light display in Arizona. Free admission and free shuttles make this beloved event family friendly.
