Following the ceremony, the Desert Ice Holiday Rink is christened with demonstrations by professional skaters and then opens to the public. The resort’s Holiday Shoppe will have a "Sparkle” event where kids dip and paint their own sparkle ornament for $5. The event also kicks-off the resort’s annual Toy for Tots Drive.
Valet parking is $10 and self-parking is complimentary.
About the Tree Lighting: Specially-designed for the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, the tree has 65,000 LED lights which “twinkle and dance” to 10 holiday songs. This synchronized lighting and music show runs 6 p.m.– 10 p.m. nightly throughout the season, playing approximately every 10 minutes. During the day, this dazzling, four-story tree is a visual experience, with dozens of glistening snowflakes and a 5-foot snowflake tree topper.
