The spirit of the Holiday season comes alive in Cave Creek tomorrow evening, in an eclectic little town just minutes from North Scottsdale.
Follow miles of lit luminaries that wind back to the Spur Cross Conservation Area, a 2,154 acre expanse of rugged Sonoran Desert terrain that will serve as the back drop for the 62nd annual Desert Foothills Christmas Pageant. This amazing re-enactment of the Nativity Story is replete with a cast of local characters and animals. Complete with the three wise men riding in on horseback — after all this is the Wild West, no camels here! — real mules, sheep and a few other surprises. Don’t sit in the front row if you are squeamish since the real horses and mules can be quite spirited and restless with the unanticipated background noises of the resident coyotes.
It takes an army of volunteers to pull this off and we have the The Kiwanis Club of Carefree to thank for partnering up. This amazing re-enactment comes complete with free candy canes, hot chocolate, parking and admission.
You’ll want to bring the entire family and don’t forget your folding chairs and blankets. Stars are literally the only light available to find your way so you will want to bring a flashlight for each member of your group. It’s dark, mystical and beautiful out there!
The park is located at 44000 N. Spur Cross Road, Cave Creek, AZ 85331 and part of the road is dirt and gravel which narrows to one lane, so you will want to give yourself ample time to make the 7:00 p.m. start.
