Holiday lights are being strung around saguaros and palo verdes on the Chandler Boulevard median between 24th Street and Desert Foothills Parkway.
The Festival of Lights’ mile of million white lights holiday display doesn’t light up officially until November. But professional installers Christmas Light Decorators started putting up lights Monday morning.
Company president Doug Topham said the project could take several weeks to complete. Although an errant white light or two were left on Monday night, they’re not scheduled to be officially turned on until Nov. 24, three days before Thanksgiving. Then, they’ll shine each night from 5:30 to 11 until Jan 1. This is the second year Christmas Light Decorators have been contracted by the Festival of Lights. The Mesa-based company also decorates the courthouse plaza in Prescott, Mill Avenue in Tempe and Glendale Glitters in Glendale, among others.
