How Many Glasses of Milk can a Cow Make?

Christmas is Almost Here!

Merry Christmas!!! December is here and bringing good cheer in Arizona’s Christmas City of Prescott. On December 7th beautiful Downtown Prescott will light up with nearly a million holiday lights as we kick off our 64th annual Christmas Courthouse Lighting. Thousands of people will gather together on the Courthouse Square in downtown Prescott to witness the traditional light up night, kicking off the Christmas season. The Christmas story will be read from the courthouse stairs as we lift our voices together in unity as a community singing traditional Christmas Carols. Is it any wonder Prescott Arizona is on the top ten best places to live list in the country?

Labeled “Arizona’s Christmas City” in 1989 by Governor Rose Mofford, Prescott has holiday festivities around every corner. As the hustle and bustle of the holiday season warms our hearts, the amazing town of Prescott once again does not disappoint.

With hometown shops and an amazing variety of local cuisine, Downtown Prescott is the perfect place to celebrate this season of joy. The Christmas festivities will carry throughout to the New Year and the holiday lights stay lit until the middle of January allowing plenty of time to plan a trip to Prescott to experience this amazing time of year. And this is only the beginning of the amazing opportunities to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year. . For more information about this and other events during the month of December visit for a community connection.

“I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December
A magical thing
And sweet to remember.

‘We are nearer to Spring
Than we were in September,’
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December.”
– Oliver Herford, I Heard a Bird Sing
