Winterhaven

This weekend we made a visit to Winterhaven. Winterhaven is a neighborhood in Tucson that goes ALL out with their Christmas décor. For two weeks in December they open their neighborhood for anyone to walk through and enjoy all of their hard work. They have police at all four entrances and they don’t allow any cars through (unless you live there of course) so the streets are full of families enjoying the festivities. In the center of the neighborhood they have music playing and several food vendors selling hot dogs, kettle corn, and of course hot chocolate. These generous residents offer this fun event FREE of charge. They do ask that you bring canned food for their drive. It’s one of the biggest fund raisers for local food banks. This year we let the older boys ride their scooters around. They had so much fun! We usually end up walking at least a couple of miles, so this made the route much easier for them. I’m so glad we were able to squeeze this fun event in just before Christmas. It was the perfect way to kick off Christmas week!
