Light up the night and be dazzled at the Valley's most unique holiday event---the Fantasy of Lights Boat Parade at Tempe Town Lake, featuring as many as 50 festively lighted boats of all sizes. Nearly 30,000 spectators attend, and METRO light rail's LED installation on the Tempe Town Lake Bridge will provide a special display. The event concludes with a dazzling fireworks grand finale.

It's the only time of the year that motorized vessels are allowed on the lake. Individuals, families and groups are invited to add to Tempe's holiday tradition by entering their people-powered, wind-powered, or motorized and festively decorated and lighted boats.

Open free to the public, the event is produced by the Downtown Tempe Community, Inc., managers of the Mill Avenue District.
