Head over to Kino Sports Complex Nov. 8 to Jan. 2 and it will be sure to 'light up your world'.

Lights of the World, the largest light and lantern festival in North America, is making its debut to Tucson on Thursday, Nov. 8. Although the event has been hosted in Phoenix for many years, this is the first time it will be in Tucson.

“The Lights of the World is a great way to spend some quality time with your friends and family during the upcoming holiday season,” said Kino Sports Complex Director Reenie Ochoa.

There are over 11 exhibits and 75 lantern displays representing different cultures and landmarks

The acrobat show runs from Nov. 8 to Dec. 2 and the sea lion show runs from Dec. 4 to Jan 2.

The festival runs every Tuesday through Sunday until Jan. 2 from 5-10 p.m. General admission tickets are $24.99. Kids three and under get in for free. The cost of the ticket covers everything except food, crafts and carnival games.
