62nd Annual Winterhaven Festival of Lights December 10th through December 25th

The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona will benefit from the 62nd Annual Winterhaven Festival of Lights to be held from December 10 through December 25, 2011.  Visitors to the Festival may walk through the neighborhood from 5:30 to 10:00 each night.  This year the drive through nights will be December 13th, 15th and 20th.

Visitors will enjoy the wonderful decorations, lights and majestic trees in the Winterhaven neighborhood.  While many people walk the streets of Winterhaven, visitors may also enjoy haywagon rides, heated trolley rides and carriage rides (on selected nights) through the neighborhood.

Last year the Winterhaven Festival of Lights collected 43,431 pounds of food and $23,692.70 for the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.

There is no entrance fee for the Festival, but attendees are asked to bring canned food or make a monetary donation to the Food Bank.  Most needed items are peanut butter and tuna fish, but all types of canned food are welcome
