A Winterhaven Tradition

This year marks the 72nd Winterhaven Festival of lights, which began in 1949.

This year marks the 72nd Winterhaven Festival of lights, which began in 1949. It’s one of Tucson's longest-running events. This tradition has been observed every year except in 1973 during a power shortage, and last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. We meet a few of Winterhaven's residents, some new and some long-time dwellers who are making the season bright.
