The official kickoff to Scottsdazzle, this tree lighting ceremony features a new addition the Holiday Sing-Along. This FREE, family-friendly event celebrates the arrival of the holiday season and the joy it brings. The Sing-Along starts at 7 p.m. when crowds gather around the Arizona Canal Banks along Scottsdale Waterfront and Southbridge to sing the songs of the season led by 99.9 KESZ host Marty Manning, local celebs and music by MusicaNova Orchestra.
Come and enjoy carols, live entertainment, holiday treats and sips, guest appearances by city VIPs and more! As the clock strikes 8 p.m., the countdown to the lighting of the tree begins, and with more than 1 million customizable colors the tree will keep Soleri Plaza lit through the season.
Don’t miss the jaw dropping art installations PRISMATICA and Reflection Rising along and over the Arizona Canal.
Details: Music provided by MusicaNova Orchestra and the Holiday Sing-Along will be led by local celebs including Santa and Gary Sprague. Roaming Sugar Plum Fairies, Nutcrackers and stilt walkers will add to the ambiance.
Amazing Art Installations at Scottsdale Waterfront:
PRISMATICA features 25 giant revolving prism sculptures. Walk among these prisms to see city life in every color of the spectrum or turn the prisms to make the colors dance. After sunset, the enormous interactive kaleidoscope’s illusory effects reach a crescendo. The rotation of the prisms also triggers variable-intensity bell music.
Reflection Rising by Poetic Kinetics is a suspended kinetic sculpture that reaches from Marshall Way Bridge to the Soleri Bridge above the Arizona Canal. Beneath an open sky, tethered elusively on the cusp of flight, Reflection Rising is a constant reminder of nature moving around us.
