GLENDALE, Ariz. -- What is synonymous with holiday fun on Thanksgiving weekend in the Valley of the Sun? Glendale Glitters!

Visitors of all ages will delight in holiday entertainment, delectable food, hand-crafted holiday gifts, a children’s winter wonderland and petting zoo, horse-drawn carriage rides, shopping and, of course, visits with Jolly Ol’ St. Nick. The always-entertaining stage show counts down to the lighting ceremony on Friday evening, Nov. 23 beginning at 5:30 p.m.
The holiday magic continues with more events in downtown Glendale, each Friday and Saturday through Dec. 15, from 6-10 p.m. each evening.
