AZ Foothills captured the magical Las Noches de las Luminarias event at the Desert Botanical Garden this past December featuring more than 8,000 hand lit luminaria bags, thousands of white twinkle lights, and the sights and sounds of nine entertainment ensembles, including the return of Simply Three.
A variety of music filtered through the gorgeous grounds including Latin, Jazz, Classical, and a handbell choir.Attendees noshed on a delicious buffet dinner from Fabulous Food Fine Catering and Events and sipped on seasonal spirits for more festive fun. The Phoenix Astronomical Society was onsite to guide guests on the Plants & People of the Sonoran Desert Trail and at the top of the Sonoran Desert Nature Trail for stargazing.
Las Noches de las Luminarias was presented by The Arizona Republic and AZCentral.com and sponsored in part by American Airlines. Video by Alexandra Gaspar.
