You Can Now Get Lost In A Labyrinth Of Twinkling Lights In The Arizona Desert

The Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix is hosting a holiday exhibit called "Las Noches de las Luminarias" and the setup looks nothing short of breathtaking.

The holiday season is a different sort of magical in the Southwestern desert, and this year you can light up your Christmas by walking through a garden of cactus and other desert plants lined with glowing luminarias. 

You won't find a pine tree here, but you WILL find several towering saguaros wrapped in Christmas lights.

8,000 flickering luminarias scattered throughout the desert grounds

The exhibit will consist of 8,000 luminarias flickering amongst the desert scenery.

You can get lost in the labyrinth of pretty desert plants...but just know that there IS a time limit due to COVID-19 regulations, so, y'know, don't get too lost.

According to their event page, drinks will be served as holiday music plays. 

There will also be a special "silent night" event on the winter solstice (December 21), in which it will be completely silent to encourage self-reflection, and no music will be played.

Capacity has been reduced to 50% as per COVID-19 guidelines.

Las Noches de las Luminarias

Price: Adult Tickets start at $29.95

When: Nov. 27 – 28, Dec. 11-13, 17 – 23, 26 – 31
