With more than 1 million lights in the display, it takes approximately 25 minutes to drive through. At the end of the light display, guests can choose to enter Holiday Boulevard. The winter playland has a 30-foot spiral tree light sculpture, a walk-thru ornament, a giant snowman, Santa’s village, kid’s jumper land, food trucks, selfie stations, cotton candy and other yummy treats to enjoy.

If you’re hoping to give back this holiday season, every Thursday Illumination will give a discount for people who bring nonperishable food items. Guests can receive $1 off admissions, up to $5, for every item donated to St. Mary’s Food Bank. A portion of each admission will also go to benefit Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
