Kick off the holiday season at Tucson's favorite public garden with Luminaria Nights, the 29th annual edition at Tucson Botanical Gardens (2150 N. Alvernon Way) on Dec. 4, 5 and 6. Have the kids visit Saint Nick, and wander the beautiful gardens in the nighttime glow of thousands of lights swirling around the garden's many unique plants. Get some holiday cheer or some of your favorite food from vendors. If you can't make it this weekend, the gardens will host the magical luminarias next weekend as well. Tickets and more info are available at www.tucsonbotanical.org.
