My wife and I recently attended a conference at the Fairmont Princess in Scottsdale which is home of PGA Tournament, The Peoples Open. To our surprise, and it's been happening for the last 6+ years, they have a Christmas wonderland otherwise known as Smoresland. The enclosed photos honest do not do it justice. It was a blast and truly magical. They had everything from an ice tubing hill to the Princess Train Depot which brings you around the resort to view all 2.8 million lights. It's incredible and we highly recommend it.
One of the grandest holiday celebrations in the Valley happens every winter at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess Resort. Christmas at the Princess, the resort's annual holiday celebration, features a holiday tree lighting ceremony, a four-story musical tree, a desert ice skating rink (open to the public nightly), 2.8 million LED lights illuminating the resort's lagoons, the Princess Express train, magical snowfalls, a Christmas petting zoo, appearances from holiday characters, nightly visits from St. Nick himself, and many other featured events. The resort is also a drop-off location for Toys for Tots. The six-week event is open to the public. Fees vary.
