Each year the Reid Park Zoo hosts "Zoo Lights" and they decorate the entire zoo with lights and fantastic animal sculptures! It is so beautiful and so fun! They have a little area where fake snow falls, they have carolers, and Santa is there, too, if you want to have your picture taken with him. It is an enchanting walk-around. You can even get a hot cocoa with rum to warm you up. Yum! Fun!
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
