Holiday Event Traditions in Pinal County!

holiday event traditions - Pinal NOW!

Pinal County has always had a soft spot for the holidays. Even last year when many public events were scaled back or canceled, residents and visitors alike rejoiced in the events they could whether it was a drive-by parade or a tour of decorated homes around Casa Grande so successful it’s coming back this year.

As of press time most of this year’s public holiday-themed events are set to return in their traditional formats — light parades where the floats do the driving, winter festivals with live entertainment, food trucks, crafts, face-painting, face-to-face Santa encounters and much, much more!
