We all love ASU football, we all have a fantasy, or two ( maybe three ), and nothing quite says that the holiday season has arrived in Arizona quite like ice skating. Right?
As usual, there are a ton of things happening along the line this weekend. Heck, these three things don’t begin to come close to all that is going on, but they will draw some crowds.
First up, it’s the final home football game of the season for the Sun Devils. After the last few games, many people are more than disappointed in the season, so far. Hopefully, people will come out to support the 24 seniors playing their last game on their home turf.
Kickoff for the ASU game vs Cal will be FRIDAY at 8:15PM. Be there. Wear Gold.
It’s that time of year again, time for the Tempe Fantasy of Lights Parade along Mill Avenue. Thousands gather along mill Avenue to see dozens of floats, balloons and holiday-decorated vehicles. Following the parade, Mayor Hallman will light the 50’ holiday tree located near the MADCAP Theater. Santa will also be around for some sweet photo ops for you and the kids.
Parade starts at approximately 6pm Saturday evening.
Why in the world would you fly to Rockefeller Center when you can head to CityScape for all of your ice skating fun? This Saturday, the NRG Ice Rink at CityScape opens for the season. There will also be a tree lighting ceremony at approximately 6:30.
This year’s ice rink is bigger and better than last year. For $10 you can skate in the desert. Yes, the skate rental is included. You should check it out!
So, the holiday season is upon us. I hope you don’t o.d. on turkey and that you survive the madness that is Black Friday. Enjoy some football, catch a parade, and keep rockin’ the Rail Life…
