Downtown Phoenix Christmas tree lighting & menorah viewing, Dec. 13

Phoenix mayor Phil Gordon invites you to celebrate the holiday season, light the City’s Christmas tree, and view its Hanukkah menorah.  There will be kids’ activities, including a chance to visit with Santa Claus.  And it all takes place within a snow-filled Cesar Chavez Plaza in downtown Phoenix.
