Prescott: Arizona’s Christmas City
If you long for an old-fashioned Christmas, with hot chocolate and mittens, parades and carolers, community performances and holiday arts and crafts wrapped in the warmth of a small-town atmosphere, make a trip this season to “Everybody’s Hometown” and “Arizona’s Christmas City,” Prescott, Arizona.
Believe it or not, Governor Rose Perica Mofford issued an official proclamation that Prescott is “Arizona’s Christmas City” back in 1989. The city and its surrounding communities offer a variety of holiday light decorations, displays, and other activities with old-fashioned hometown charm. The Courthouse lighting is a tradition established in 1954 for residents and visitors to share family time in the spirit of joy and wonder that is the holiday season.
Prescott offers a veritable bevy of free holiday events for all ages from the annual light parade to the world’s largest gingerbread village. Cities and towns all across Arizona spend lots of money on Christmas lighting displays, and yes, some are larger and grander than in Prescott. But if your soul longs for the essence of the old-fashion Christmas that you enjoyed as a child, then you need to come to Prescott.
We’ve always been a big believer in the magic of Prescott and no time does the beauty of this wonderful time shine brighter than the holiday season. From all of us at Crystal Creek Builders, have a Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy Holiday!
