The Mesa Chamber of Commerce has sponsored Mesa’s official Christmas tree. Check it out on Macdonald north of Main Street.

Downtown Mesa will have an ice skating rink just outside City Plaza. The Winter Wonderland Ice Rink is a great way to enjoy the amazing winter weather while skating under the stars.

FREE visits with Santa Fridays and Saturdays around the Christmas Tree! Bring your cell phone or camera for pictures.

Start (or end) your journey down Merry Main Street, Fridays or Saturdays, at Jack Frost’s Food Truck Forest at Pioneer Park. While you are there, enjoy a classic holiday movie or take a free ride on the Main Street Express Train!

In the spirit of the traditional European style market, Mesa is creating a new tradition of its own! Fridays & Saturdays, the Mesa Christmas Market will offer local vendors in pop-up shops featuring traditional and nontraditional foods, handcrafted items, beautiful lights and live performances.

Create new memories and your own holiday card at Santa’s sELFie Stations. Look for stations near the Christmas Tree and along Main Street.

Join us as we zoom down Merry Main Street. In our special Light Rail car, we will sing songs, enjoy cookies and, best of all, maybe meet Santa! Wear your pajamas and enjoy the season in the childlike and festive tradition of the Polar Express. (Runs Dec. 7, 8 & 15 – Details & reservations)
