Don’t Miss the Impressive Holiday Light Display of Winter Wonderland Arizona


Sunny Arizona doesn’t typically conjure up images of a powdery white snowfall or a fairy tale Christmas scene, but that’s exactly what you’ll get at Chris Birkett’s Winter Wonderland in Scottsdale. For the past 30 years, Birkett has designed a jaw-dropping holiday light display that you really must see to believe. His creation seems larger than life, and it’s filled with that indescribable Christmas magic.
Birkett’s digitally computerized light spectacular includes 250,000 animated, flashing, dancing lights that put on a performance to festive, upbeat music. The lights seem to actually breathe with the musical rhythms. However, this isn’t just a typical blinking light-fest. Various scenes are scattered throughout the display, and each one visually tells a charming tale. You’ll be captivated and dazzled by the sparkling show from start to finish.The focal point of this attraction is the sky-high castle rising above the glimmering scene. Walking around the property feels as if you’re exploring Santa’s mystical village. Snow themed displays, candy cane path markers and familiar characters from childhood just add to the wonder. There is even a snow machine that gently blows flakes through the air, giving the entire scene a very Christmas vibe.

While you’re there, be sure to take a break and enjoy some steaming hot chocolate, which is made on the site. Birkett also heats up s’mores and roasts marshmallows over an open flame, and he offers the treats to his guests. The delicious holiday goodies and falling snow mixed with the kaleidoscope of color and cheery tunes is a true feast for the senses.

The back of the property is just as exciting as the front. New for 2016, Birkett added a Disney’s Frozen display that will have any fan jumping for joy. It’s virtually impossible to feel like a grownup while wandering through the enchanted scenery. Each image captures what makes the holiday season so special. This isn’t just a light show; it’s a celebration.

Boundless creativity is evident at the Winter Wonderland, but so is the heart behind it. This is a fantasy world where you can step away from reality and just dream. To top off the Christmas experience, Santa Claus pays a visit Dec. 24 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. You can relive your own childhood while giving your favorite little ones an adventure they’ll cherish for the rest of their lives.

Birkett’s extraordinary light extravaganza is located on Valley Vista Drive and it’s free to the public. The Wonderland is open daily from 6-10 p.m. only until Dec. 31. Don’t miss out on what’s sure to become a treasured annual tradition. This is your chance to gather your loved ones and enjoy the true delight and spirit of Christmas.
