Blessed to live in the desert with rich holiday traditions such as Desert Botanical Garden Luminaria more info @ www.dbg.org#. Luminarias are placed, lit and snuffed by the hands of staff and volunteers. Mariachi music greets visitors at the gate, and hot cocoa and cookies are still available to guests. New traditions have been added, such as twinkle lights on trees throughout the Garden and a dinner buffet in Dorrance Hall. Adding more nights, luminarias and entertainment to the celebration of Luminaria helps the Garden enhance its longest-running tradition every year. #bontanicalgardens#phoenix#luminaria#naturephotography#desert#design#holiday
